Yeah, that would be a good comparison - .NET will have to JIT all of
IronPython as it loads, which can take some time. The installer runs
NGEN to reduce this pretty significantly. Plus the compiled exes are
pretty big, which is a lot of code to load from disk.

Alex, it might be worth having an option to exclude
IronPython.Modules/Sqlite/Wpf just to reduce the disk size a bit.
