Slow is better.  Considering that we're trying to get our regression
tests to always pass (so that the regression tests can actually serve
their purpose), leaving something buggy is counter productive.

Once we have regression tests that always pass, we can more easily
modify and optimize the code, removing any performance problems it has,
while still passing the regression tests.  It's a lot harder to make
such changes without breaking other areas of code without the regression
test safety net.
