4MB is not big. But your program pulls in `framework`, `plot`, and
`math` (which is used by `plot`, anyway), which all have to be loaded
and involve lots of bytecode.

Yes, constructing the class does take some work, but it's unlikely to
be a noticeable amount of work.

I notice that your code calls `running-stickman-icon` on startup, which
takes about 2 seconds on my machine. Meanwhile, just loading
`plot`+`math`+`framework` takes about 2.5 seconds. Maybe there are some
other slow-to-load libraries, and then maybe improving code-loading
times in Racket will help for your application.
