Don't take that for granted, unless you have benchmarked it. For
example, the UPX documentation says: "Depending on the statistics of
usage and access, and the relative speeds of CPU, RAM, swap space,
/tmp, and file system storage, then invoking and running a compressed
executable can be faster than directly running the corresponding
uncompressed program. The operating system might perform fewer
expensive I/O operations to invoke the compressed program."
