I fully agree ehre. And if people improve numpy's startup time with
breaking or obfuscating stuff, I am very happy. I was just trying to help

Yes, the value of open source is that different people improve the same
tools to meet different goals, thus we should always keep on open ear to
other people's requirements, especially if they come up with high-quality
code.
