L>  3. speed - not a big deal. Hardware cheap enough.
If you ship programs, it's not you who decide whether hardware is

If you do a small repetitive task several millions times, speed may
easily differ hundred times (for example: compiled piece of code fits into
cache, but interpreted doesn't; multiply by misc inefficiencies inside

Uncommon data processing may easily require such repetitive tasks.

If all tasks were common, program development would suffer much.
