I'd like to see an activity startup time comparison (just taken with a
stopwatch) between 650, joyride before the new sugar shell but after
rainbow prelaunch was added, and latest joyride.  We should do this
before we ship 8.2, and in future we should try to publish changes to
activity startup time alongside patches that touch activity launch.

I was planning on doing this measurement myself, but it's not getting to
the top of my stack.  Could I persuade someone else to volunteer?
