Have I misunderstood something, or is this optimization really just about
the fact that message loading is not necessary if the compiler is
requested to output no messages at all? Even if this (probably extremely
rare!) case happens, the difference must be completely negligible unless
you perform very many compilations of simple and short source files
without further dependencies (which doesn't sound like a typical use case
to me ;-) ), right?
