This is the only thing I can answer trivially. When loading ECL, it
has to build up a lot of constants and other perishable data. Since
ECL stores this data in text format (*.data files created when a file
is compiled), the reader must be used to reconstruct the data.

BTW, could you send me privately a tarball with the sources and test
program you used for profiling? The profile logs as well, to compare
with the ones I may produce on my imac. That would save me quite some
