Bash-completion slows up the start of bash

Loading /etc/bash_completion is slow
Status in bash completion:
Status in “bash-completion” package in Ubuntu:
Status in “bash-completion” package in Debian:
Loading /etc/bash_completion takes over 0.5s (usually over 0.6s).
While this doesn't seem like much, maybe, it's very annoying for a
file that must be sourced in .bashrc. If it could go in
.bash_profile, that would be fine, but it seems bash is not designed
to work that way for completion rules.
I am on a 1.1Ghz Pentium M, so not ancient h/w. The 0.6s delay on
opening a new terminal is very annoying.
