I agree, the running speed is also crucial and needs vast improvements.
However, improving the startup time certainly doesn't hurt the running
speed, so I say why not, especially when the patches seems simple (such
as merging the config files into one file, among other changes).
As for running speed, I believe that nautilus should load instantly on a
cold start, instead of 5 seconds or so. Same goes with the gnome
applications menu (which takes ~3 seconds to load from cold start on my
laptop). Perhaps there is an equivalent page that has similar
information, but for post logged-in speeds?
