Luckily, performance doesn't have to be a matter of opinion. You can  
benchmark it.

I'm having a hard time understanding from your comment what  
optimization changes you think are appropriate, but if you can produce  
a patch that implements your idea, and shows a benefit on a benchmark,  
I'd be happy to review it.
