What would be the penalty of performing the optimisation if you don't need it?
Why make something more complicated when it doesn't bring you any benefit? Some obvious disadvantages:
- You waste time writing more complicated code, with no benefit for your application;
- You make life harder for whoever has to maintain the code later (whether that’s you or someone else), again with no benefit;
- The optimised code, being more complicated, is more likely to have bugs;
