I thought surely I had seen a recommendation of this site/book on one of

At the risk of repeating myself, this appeals to the mathematician in 
me... cancel terms and simplify your equations as you work. But this 
item goes a bit further than that... in recommending the removal of code 
that is *functional* but not *necessary*... and probably not used, and 
certainly not worth its cost.
