It's mostly about slow startup time, yes.

It's interesting how erlc runs very fast though, despite running Erlang 
code. If the package manager was built like erlc, instead of like an 
escript, it would ease my concerns very much and I might be able to 
integrate it with erlang.mk (assuming there are no other issues that I 
can't foresee at the moment).
