yes and no. it depends on whether you consider algorithmic optimizations to be architecture.

For example, my first crack at LALR(1) table generation was taking 5 minutes to generate the tables for javascript.

My second one cut that to a 5th of the time.

The cost was code that was no longer "pure" and readable.

It wasn't an architecture change. Unless you think it was. But I wouldn't agree, and I wrote it.
When I was growin' up, I was the smartest kid I knew. Maybe that was just because I didn't know that many kids. All I know is now I feel the opposite.
