Things that affect our applications' performance

Well, Derek, I see your point, I understand that sometimes your suggestion is better, although I disagree that it should be on a general guideline, but it is your guideline.

Well, it's a guideline for 3rd party developers writing plugins, modules, and extensions for ExpressionEngine, so it does have a more specific target audience than just recommendations for PHP developers. For that audience, I think this is the correct conclusion.

But as your test also showed, what's optimal for case X isn't always optimal for case Y. Developers should feel free to make decisions based on what is best for their code's needs, particularly when we're not talking about performance sapping differences, and those decisions might be based on speed, on code legibility, on personal preference, etc.

This weekend's been the weekend for debating the benchmarking of relatively insignificant things, eh? Of which I publicly admit having a certain addiction to, despite reality always grounding the discussions and making them of little interest outside of theory. :-D
