[erlang-questions] Clarify: how to reduce startup time for escript ?

I am working on a better integration of Erlang and TextMate (Mac text
editor), basically adding the stuff which emacs / distel  already
provides out-of-the-box.

My current approach is based on escripts, which get called for
specific actions such as compiling. For details see:

One problem with escripts is that their startup time is within a
range, which a user perceives as (short) delay.

It's about 0.15 sec on my system.

Does there exist a trick to reduce this startup time ?

Other approches such as connecting to a runnig node  give a response
time perceived as "immediate", but are significantly more difficult to
implement and to integrate into TextMate.
