[PD] Quick processor question

The main loop of the object will still compute the
value for a zero Hz signal (always 1), and output
blocks. So, in this case an argument of zero shouldn't
use any less CPU.

However, does anyone know if it'll take less processor, while not using the output of the object, to give it an argument of 0? That is to say, while the output has [*~] + 0 that zero is also set to the frequency of the [osc~] will this be any more efficient?
