I mean, good for him for being a successful author but that doesn't make his statement correct.

As a counter-example I just sped up Glory by at least 100% in all cases through some well placed optimizations.

And since it's a build tool speed matters because it impacts your dev cycle such that modify->compile->run gets nasty long during the compilation part.

It makes editing grammars arduous. Speed is important for the user experience, even when the user is another developer.

On the other hand, "Don't optimize, yet" i can totally get behind. Or as I like to say "first make it work, then make it fast"
Real programmers use butterflies
