If you can't provide evidence that a change produces a speedup of
at least 10%, don't change anything, since the changes itself would
probably be too expensive. Maybe we don't have to depend on 10% but
on 5% for the kernel, though.
Even this discussion is expensive and for little gain except somebody
can prove that certain optimisations account for a certain speedup
and the price of more packages, more maintenance, more size etc.
should be paid.
