Ah-hah, so it's a fairly powerful machine. Okay, let's say we have 10x
slower CPU and RAM, then we win 0.1 second of startup time, and that's a
best-case situation on a really old machine. Given all the cons of prelink
I've listed earlier in this thread, I think it's completely clear now that
we're not going to use it.

Thanks for mythbusting. It's been fun!
