I dislike any form of "compile time" tuning ... it is one of those things
that has turned building Unix apps into a dogs breakfast with incredibly
painful make / configuration systemss,  it used to be so simple.

Agree , considering how fast it is in most cases it would be premature
optimization..Once you have your app finished tune by all means.  Doing some
testing last few days and quite a few surprises.
