Indeed, I deliberately removed the part about performance concerns,
since I considered it a distraction from what I see as the heart of
the problem PEP 414 is designed to address (i.e. that the purely
mechanical changes previously required to Unicode text that is already
clearly marked as such in the Python 2 version are irrelevant noise
when it comes to identifying and reviewing the *actual* changes needed
for a successful Python 3 port).
