Well, the idea is that you are going to get the hashcode on small
strings more often than on large strings, so you still get a net

For example, if I remember correctly from when I was optimizing MCS, a
large percent of our calls to Hashtable are looking up local variables.
I know that coding conventions are in dispute, but I doubt we are
looking up many 30 some char variable names.
