    DRY is something to strive for but as pointed out there are often tradeoffs with DRY. One that I ran into not too long ago when writing https://github.com/ohler55/ojg was the performance penalty that DRY code can incur. Sadly there is a lot of repetition in that code but by avoiding a dry approach the code is also several times faster than if more functions were used to avoid repetition.
