Premature optimization is the root of all evil
-- D. Knuth
  1. Make it work (check - Slang generator)
  2. Automate it (check - Parsley generator)
  3. Profile... profile... and profile again. Only then can you make intelligent decisions about what to improve.
Smaller and faster code is obviously better, but you eventually reach the point of diminishing returns. Is it really worth a few months of your life to improve code speed/size by (say) 1%?
Freedom is the freedom to say that two plus two make four. If that is granted, all else follows.
