0. Does it work?

My take on "premature optimization is the root of all evil" is simple: first, make sure everything works correctly (e.g. passes all tests).

Then, and only then, should you look at the remainder of that list.

Also, between 3 and 4, a good question is "will any fix make it fast enough to be worth my time to implement?"
