Considering the machine code produced, the C version would turn out terribly inefficient. It suffers from:

- Noteable recursion overhead when the problem could easily be iterative.
- Bad, but not yet stupid cache coherency
- Excessive branching

Stop thinking about what "code looks pretty" and start thinking about what will function. Next we'll see programmers getting paid for their artistic merit with ascii art in comments.
