No code "optimization" giving a twofold speedup (or less) is worth it.

Optimizing a library function consuming ten percent of the total CPU power consumed by a production run of your application (or less) isn't worth it.

First law of code optimization: Don't do it.

Second law of code optimization: If you have to do it, don't do it yet.

"Optimization" is one of the most poorly understood, and therefore one of the most badly abused, concepts of the software business.
