This has been the projects general goal (basically, splash screens
mean you did it wrong is the attitude). Jon's icon caching and
Krzysztof's cairo work both helped this immensely, but we still have a
ways to go.
In my latest go at trying to figure out what's taking the most time a
significant chunk of it related to fontconfig calls. Perhaps loading
the UI prior to us doing our fontconfig stuff could yield results that
would be noticeable. I have a callgrind (valgrind) output if you're
interested in checking it out... it appears that WinCacheGrind would
be the win32 utility to check it out.
