I did notice this article and took note of the claim.

This is a very interesting topic to me and one that merits a "science
project". I invested much effort in making sure code was generated at
compile time whenever possible so I would be disappointed at such a result.

My past experience in this area is that one really has to undertake a
serious effort to gather this kind of data. I've been through before with my
sort program ( and now believe that there is no short cut in
this area. Anecdotal information is usually very misleading. I would guess
there is likely a few areas where performance is getting bogged down. I
might suspect the stl used in object tracking. However, in the past,
whenever I really looked at these questions with a good statistical
profiler, I've always found that bottle necks in places where I never would
have suspected.

So, this is an interesting area which needs a serious look.
