With Emacs now calling package-initialize on its own, I noticed (after

startup as before. One guess is that my init file was lexically
binding gc-cons-threshold to 64MB --- the default gc-cons-threshold
of 800K is likely from the past and could be increased.

There's a tradeoff though: increasing gc-cons-threshold means that the GC that eventually occurs takes longer. I wish we had generational GC.
