    This reminds me of the (clearly) apocryphal story of the 1980s programmer that would start every program with

    int main() {
        int i;
        for ( i=0; i < 1000000; i++) {}
    

    … and any time the program was going too slow, you just took a zero out!

    I’d definitely be interested in hearing more about developing in extremely resource constrained environments. James Hague has some posts that touch on some of these thoughts:

      It would seem to me that most of these issues could be “mitigated” with a binary AoP system to insert pointcuts into the engine code.
