A local var can be changed. Without optimization the compiler puts the
local var on the stack. With optimization enabled the compiler can
find out that the local var is only read, which is also true for a with-expression and applies the same optimizations.

Optimizing read only variables is basic code optimization.

If speed matters you should enable optimization. When optimization is
enabled there is no difference.
