Yeah, one of the points I was trying to make is that having something
like this would make the world a much better place...

Generally, I think that performance is way overrated -- there was
once the "20% code responsible for 80% time" thing that people said,
but I think that with time (computers getting faster and applications
moving to a higher, gluing-some-pieces-together level) these numbers
are constantly moving to the respective extremes.
