Hopefully this is easy to find in the source code.

Sure it is. Why have it require that much if it's not necessary?

Not bad, but no crafting reductions. It's just not necessary. A recipe is nothing but a structure that says which tools and items are used to produce which item. This is almost nothing in terms of CPU requirements (really, a C64 can handle that EASILY). It just takes some memory. With less then a hundred kb you can easily have a thousand+ recipes.
