That's true. But it was useful only for debugging.
I guess... :)

I see a reason. This can make you think about ways
to improve the graphics, sound... every resource and
push your game to the limit of your machine. This will
assure that your game will remain stable and it won't
slowdown even when the screen fills will dozens of
monsters in an unexpected condition. You will have
the freedom to improve the L&F of the game without
worrying about performance.
