If I considered it a waste, I wouldn't have devoted the time -- there
was no "force" involved.

Things have gotten a bit heated, my fault, I apologize.

My misunderstanding. I argued that the choice required that a user
wishing some different trade-offs would need to modify or rewrite a
large complex piece of code instead of a small, simple one. Your
response was that they could just use a completely different,
non-standard conformant, library instead of customizing the code. I'm
not sure what you are now saying (really) -- that I was right and that
there is no reasonable way for library users to choose different
performance trade-offs?

I really am not trying to attack, just to understand.
