If the deal is "correct but slow" vs "flaky but faster" I surely prefer the
"flaky but fast" side. I have encountered quite a few issues with C++ in
gdb, so yes, that's not nice. But usually one can work around somehow on
the user side. Raw speed on the other hand is nothing the user can improve.
I'm more of a "correct over speed" guy myself, but your concern is
noted. Maintainers will have to weigh this matter when more information
about the impact is known.
Like I said: If anyone can define for me a suitable test(s), I would be
happy to do whatever necessary to quantify this.
