    @lbfalvy must be a mental thing, they think preformant code means short lines, and short lines means short variable names

    @Hazarth this isn't sacrificing readability for performance, this is sacrificing readability for character count.

    Except for the constructor, nowhere is this thing used as a tuple. The fields are exclusively accessed using dot syntax.

    because they're used to unreadable code since huge number of times, the most performant code is unavoidably the least readable
