Layers in programming

I just got inspired by David Intersimone's latest blog posts about the history of Delphi:

Modern programming is like Onions. It stinks? Yes. No. They make you cry? Yes. NO. Layers. Onions have layers. Modern programming has layers. Onions have layers. You get it?

(Which reminds me that I need to buy the latest Shrek movie)

When adding layers, always remember that layers add latency.

What is it with everyone and the onions? Cake! Everybody loves cakes! Cakes have layers. . . You know what else everybody likes? Parfaits. Have you ever met a person, you say, "Let's get some parfait," they say, "Hell no, I don't like no parfait"? Parfaits are delicious. Parfaits may be the most delicious thing on the whole damn planet.

Hmm....do you think layers will slow the program down ?
