I am aware that 9.8ms is only %0.08 of the 11 seconds
Sorry, but you've answered yourself there. 0.08% is
  • 1 extra second on a webpage that takes 20 minutes to load.
  • 1 extra minute on a batch job that takes a whole day.
  • 1 extra hour on a process that takes 2 months run.

And that's ignoring all the other benefits -- already listed above -- of not having to pass this God-reference around everywhere.

I still say death by a 1000 cuts!

More like 200,000,000 (1/0.000000005) itsy-bitsy, teany-weany paper cuts.

You (and the implementers of dTHX/aTHX_ et al.) are fiddling while Rome burns. The very definition of premature optimisation.


With the rise and rise of 'Social' network sites: 'Computers are making people easier to use everyday'
Examine what is said, not who speaks -- Silence betokens consent -- Love the truth but pardon error.
"Science is about questioning the status quo. Questioning authority".
In the absence of evidence, opinion is indistinguishable from prejudice.

RIP Neil Armstrong
