If the user doesn't need those values and can provide cheap substitutes,
perhaps their computation can be avoided.  I did that recently by inlining
only the parts of logging.LogRecord.__init__ in a subclass and avoided
calling logging.LogRecord.__init__ altogether.  It generated lots of
instance variables we never use and just slowed things down.
