This is what I expected as an answer, that effort just fully destroying 
any benefits.
All what I can hear is just better not touch stuff which works and find 
improvements different way.
Change (algorithms/caching/...) where I agree, and seems like bottleneck 
will be FS I/O or network delays.

Just want to thank you for all answers on my question.
