startup times

I just noticed that Guile startup time gets noticeably slow once
you start loading packages.

Here's the best times for three separate "time guile -c" commands,
on my P5-166 Linux laptop:

  (display "X")                            0.960u 0.010s 0:01.02
  (use-modules (oop goops)) (display "X")  2.230u 0.050s 0:02.35
  (use-modules (net http))  (display "X")  3.280u 0.060s 0:03.44

Plain Guile with HTTP library (which also loads GOOPS) takes over
3 seconds to load before loading application code.

Will any startup speed improvements make it into 1.6?
