I know, but the idea ports to other forms of optimization, such as scalability to a load many times greater than a realistic scenario, adding support for extensions to a single-purpose tool, and so forth. I see the Java habit of "always use double" even when the data will never need to store to more than single decimal place as an example of this, too.
