So where are the numbers to prove that normalization is needed?
I want to see numbers. If typical application will start up 1 nanosecond
faster then before, I'd like to see human readable, unnormalized connections.
In any case I'd say we're trying to force programmers (or their scripts)
to do computer's job.
Say, KDevelop has about 2500 signal-slot connections in the source code.
If we assume all of them are executed at startup, how much faster KDevelop
will be with normalized signal/slot names?
