Improved startup-time is a nice-to-have, but hardly a must-have,
especially since our startup-time is not awfully bad. Most of the
things on our roadmap  is more important than improved startup
time. From a GIMP project point if view, it would be better if you
worked on items on the roadmap instead. But you are of course free to
work on whatever you want. We're not going to ignore a high-quality
patch that improves startup time.
