Your numbers could not stop anyone from doing anything blindly, because you did not say what exactly you measured, and how significant 0.01 s was for that. It could have been half the total execution time for all we know.

In a benchmark I just ran, I get ca 10% speed-up by caching table.insert. Not a lot, but, as said by others, could make all the difference.
