Again, I believe that's exactly the point Cris was making - running a 
million executions of a code block is not something which happens in real 
life.  In practice, chances are the speed loss will be negligible in most 
real world situations.

Don't get me wrong - I'm not saying that that's a good reason to slow 
things down, but we should keep things in proportion.
