But compared to the other stuff here, the cost of the API and
different calling methods are very small. From testing it the
difference between a function and a class called in a filter is not
quite 1 millisecond when called 400times (out of maybe 3.5s unmodified
page creation time in this case).

actually be used, and try to work around db calls.
In this case I profiled with all plugins deactivated.
