Is there a canonical example of code that runs slower with this 

What is the mechanism of the slowdown, just having more arguments to 
pass down?

Unless the slowdown really is significant, I would still suggest 
enabling the optimisation by default. Without it, code may run slightly 
faster up until the point that it crashes by overflowing the stack :)
