To Discuss: Application Startup Time

Dear friends,

	Is there any past work related to optimizing the startup time of GNOME

	Why does Emacs, a complex scriptable beast, start faster than GEdit,
the (supposed to be) lightweight text editor?

	What are the main bottlenecks of application startup in GNOME? I see
that when GNOME 2.0 was released, some new technologies such as
client-side fonts raised the startup time significantly when compared to
1.x applications. 

	I would like to bring up a discussion on how we could make GNOME
applications start faster, at hacker level and user level.

	Any toughts?
