   Actually, that's not true enough to be dismissive.  It depends on

Well, I would still say it's far too insignificant to bother with.

Depends I guess on how far you need to optimise the code. I'd imagine
that to something like Facebook, every split-second of optimisation is
worth it, as even a 100th of a second becomes minutes of wasted time
over the course of a few hours when you consider their volume of users,
even with caching.

One would expect that Facebook uses a bytecode cache... possibly one with an optimizer... the issue is very moot at that point since the difference will be optimized away at parse time.
