It's to be expected that every loaded module might slow down
some operations. Loading a major mode should usually not make
a difference, and neither should minor modes that just add
key-bindings. But many minor modes use various hooks to do work
before/after some/every commands, or before/during redisplay.
So these tend to slow down the interactive feel while they'll make
little/no difference in typical benchmarks that are done as a single
command and don't involve redisplay.
