Sorry, yes, in that particular case the change will speed it up
dramatically.  That case is (i) When there is a paren in column zero in
a comment; (ii) There is a lot of syntactic whitespace and no "normal"
code between that paren and the spot being edited.  I see this more as a
bug fix than a performance enhancement.

But for CC Mode in general, I don't see a dramatic speed up happening
because of this change.
