than a heartbeat and the user gets impatient and distracted.  
Programming in Python is typically much easier than C/C++, but making  
a Python program load and execute quickly can be a challenge. This  
talk explains how Bazaar, a GPL-licenced distributed version control  
system written in Python, can execute commands like “bzr status” in as  
little as 100ms on my fairly modest laptop even though it has roughly  
120000 lines of Python source code. This talk will cover tools and  
techniques for both analysing and fixing causes of long startups for
