There are two prices you are paying here, one you knew about and one
you may have missed:

1) You've cut yourself off from the power of pattern-directed
application:  no construction rules will get a chance once you take

2) You've serialised things:  no benefit from parallel processing is

Neither of these is a killer, just worth noting.
