This information is very important IMO.
The programmer should know which coding has which performance.

The reason for many slow programs is that
the programmer(s) do not know about such details.
If i.e. a loop over a huge array can be speeded up with
a slight coding change  it should be done.
The attitude: "don't worry about the details" is wrong IMO.
