Indeed.  However, I was being a bit glib with my example, and didn't
explain my point properly: that performance issues should be subordinate
to good design.  Therefore, I suspect MonkeyPatching is bad:

 Pros - a tiny performance gain
 Cons - unpredictable interaction with future products; not a well-known
method of distributing products; not easily discoverable

But perhaps my 'cons' are misplaced?  Mostly, I'm uneasy that someone
looking at ZPublisher code would have no way of knowing that
CallProfiler hooks into it if it were monkeypatched.
