Nope.  As long as it works, Crackers should keep plugging away.  It's
more important to encourage people than "optimize" my ego.

I won't improve code unless asked to.  Well, actually I'll jump in if
someone claims their game has no free space for new features.

Tag-team optimization can yield unexpected savings on the 6502.  Most
successful 6502 games I can think of involved two or more programmers
at some point in the development cycle.  COMBAT, for example, was
based on a core engine developed by several programmers.  It's very
tight code - I only found a dozen or so bytes in savings.

Sorry to hear I ruined your vacation plans, Piero  ;)
