I too had an early mentor impart similar wisdom, possibly around the
same that time yours did.  Since then I have always tried to keep the
end user experience foremost in my work.

"Many bugs that would be hard to fix" is not a given.  I cannot count
the number times I have replaced recursion with iteration.  With
discipline (no other changes to the algorithm) it is a straight
forward conversion.

I agree that merely being able to handle large files is not a strong
justification.  OTOH, in spite of running on a state of the art
desktop with 64GB RAM, 4GHz+ multi-core processor and high-end gamer
graphics Emacs feels progressively less responsive.  Any work
countering that trend gets my vote.
