As the codebase grows, pains of bad practices accumulate. The fact that production gets slower with more code, is a sure sign there are abundant bad practices in the project. Eliminating all the impedance - the crud - will increase the speed to the point where production speed accumulates. Although counter-intuitive, this speedup comes from code re-use and established working pipeline.
