True, but I don't think we are talking about optimization like changing
Object Pascal code to ASM. The original poster (as far as I can tell)
simply meant that checking for verbosity or whatever before generating
message output. So message calls are only generated/used when really needed.

This seems like a simple enough optimization without impacting clarity.
