You likely have a few more grey hairs than I. But I did write some Fortran... in high school.

It should be relatively easy to make something configured only for SSL work without it. It's removing complexity vs adding it. Mostly that complexity is abstracted from the developer into configuration details with libraries and frameworks handling the nitty gritty of hand shakes and certificates. In most cases, I'd guess the developer need only do configurational things and provide appropriate files. "Only"... heh.

It is the case that some recent work was approached in just that way which is why I'm aware of the contextual "no don't do SSL" from Microsoft.

Performance is a tricky thing. I don't disagree about designing with it in mind, but I might be wary of getting terribly caught up in "pre-optimization". It's maybe sometimes easier to see what needs the most grease once the machine is running.

My gut says it tends less to be that things weren't designed with performance in mind. The modern development practice of trying to reuse every wheel possible while creating as few purpose built ones as one can get away with? We had a frame, wheels, chain, gear, and pedals so we rather efficiently glue them all together in Henry Ford fashion. But then we find we are riding a 1-speed bike up a hill.

Moore's law and related meant we got way more resources than we needed and we leveraged them. Perfection took a far back seat to productivity. Regardless of where that falls on one's bad<->understandable<->good line, it does mean that a sizeable majority have never had to think very much about it at all.
