I don't know how you measured your startup time, but the 1900ms you
mention in the bug seems pretty bogus to me. The template app on
currently starts in about ~200ms. I'd love to see a 3x speedup but I
won't hold my breath on it ;) We have a potential improvement coming in
that may save a few tens of ms but that has nothing to do with nuwa
The memory savings are in line with the expectations though.
