is -fno-monomorphism-restriction evil?

Hi, all!

It may be a side-effect of being a newbie, but many times I find the
-fno-monomorphism-restriction quite handy. Is it intrinsically evil? I
mean, has anyone had a bad time using it or does it imply some runtime
performance overhead? I guess it is not portable, is it?

Thanks in advance. Cheers,
