The duplicate summary caused this to be swallowed by my "have I already dealt
with this?" tools.
For future reference, I think avoidable quadratic (or worse!) behavior is fair
to consider an outright bug and appropriate for stable, especially if we see it
manifest in 100s+ overhead.
What I don't like to see on stable is performance tweaking with small constant
factors. A 2x speed-up is awesome.. but not worth risking regression on stable
I've manually grafted this here, thanks.
Mathematics is the supreme nostalgia of our time.
