Running Hugh's timing script from the command prompt, right after a
reboot, I get 1.1 seconds. Then on successive runs I get between 0.1 and
0.2 seconds. Then I ran the wx demo (without rebooting) and it was just
under 1.5 seconds for the splash. On successive runs it was well under 1
So, maybe wxPython's not as bad as I thought. It's like my car in the

can make it home. ;)
