architecture/design/code and do some refactoring. Then, and only if you need 
to, look at what optimizations might be required.  Many times that is "good 
enuf" and no more need be done.

Availability of binary formats leads to temptation to prematurely optimize, 
which will get people into more hot water than taking a more standards-based,
