Almost true -- some files are "preloaded", which means that a preliminary
version of Emacs ("temacs") loads them when Emacs is built and then a new
Emacs executable is created which -has already loaded them-, which is a
slightly odd concept.  The important bit is that at each normal Emacs
start, it doesn't load as many files.

Perhaps you could use `load-read-function', and call `mapatoms' from your
wrapper for `read'?
