I agree with you here, and sorry if I took you too seriously. There is one case in the past year where I bit twiddled to get the absolute best performance I could, and in that case I'd be able to justify it in code review.

Performance matters when it matters, even if it often doesn't matter for things like bizdev and webdev as much.

I don't want to saddle developers with huge build times like I said, so it's worth my effort to optimize it you know? But after a point it's diminishing returns. I spend under an hour doing it so it was well worth it, even if I was doing it for work, I could justify that. It pays for itself by a dozen builds easy.
