Antti Haapala added the comment:
I wouldn't actually consider the builtin lookup speed almost at all, in all
non-trivial applications the ratio of builtins to any other names will
diminish; and if there is a tight loop, it is possible to always speed it up by
`min = min` if you do not need to support monkey patching.
