    The balance (Score: 3)

    There are two schools of thought on this. Both are polarized:

    1). everything needs to be cpu optimized for good performance.:

    2). cpu optimization is not worth the time and effort for such an insignificant performance increase.:

    Here is the balance:
    Although not every app would be noticably improved when optimized, the main stuff like base system, compilers, kernel, X, KDE, Gnome, Mozilla, Netscape, and a few others, would benefit greatly if cpu opitmized. Basically, if everything that is running on the machine at startup (incl lpd, xdm, etc) is optimized, that would be good.:

    The main workhorse apps, and the cpu hungry stuff should be optimized where possible, and for all other 3000+ misc apps can be left as is.:

    3D Games would also benefit from cpu optimization.:

    mc, pppconfig, more, would not be benefitted.:

    Perhaps certain apps that would benefit could be flagged as so, for when some new fangled clever Debian installer/compiler ‘apt-get source’ replacement is created.
