Yes that's true, and you can have this scenario developing for handhelds: you have coded the fastest possible algorithm in C and your code is beautifully optimized by gcc, but the testers say that the frame rate is still 20 to 30% bellow the bare minimum and your boss want it to be fixed by tomorrow in the morning, in those cases you develop a radically novel algorithm from scratch, take the assembly generated by the compiler and bump it to the maximum manually or pray to have a real programmer nearby, if all else fail, you find an elegant way to end your suffering.
