Doing that will cause me some difficulty, as I occasionally write a paragraph that sacrifices some clarity for the sake of speed of execution, then compensate for the opacity of the code by overcommenting.

Of course you did profile the simple clear solution first before creating a more complex and harder to maintain solution - didn't you ? :-)

      Do I pass? ;)

      With flying colours !

      It's just one of my pet hates when people think that a comment over an ugly and complicated piece of code is better than making the code simpler to understand - often using the excuse of efficiency with no real backup.
