Re: "Clean" Code, Horrible Performance

I agree.

Also, clean code is never about performance, but about maintainability.

And the benchmarking is biased. The functions are so simple that the
overhead is far more obvious than the real world.

This said, I would say I am never a fan of virtual interface, especially
when there is only one real implementation.
