Yes, absolutely true :-)

But i never used more than 10 minutes of my day for booting 
(except the old VAX/VMS days). So a speedup of 22% will only
save me 2 minutes and some seconds. Thats why i say: _i_ dont care.
I want to save one _hour_ per day, this is what counts for me :-) 

And that is why i am arguing: please make it simple enough,
that i can really _use_ it. If it gets too complicated, i will
need more time to make it running than i will gain by its usage.

Sorry for beeing so obstinate ;-)
