comment Is premature optimization really the root of all evil?
I think "gold-plating" is different than optimizations. Optimizations are generally all about trying to get the most performance while "gold-plating" is about adding the "bells and whistles" (all the extra functionality) that isn't critical to the product but looks/feels cool to do.
