I don't use a loader (I have hand-defined schema classes), but Catalyst
startup time is slow even on my local machine (which is a quite fast
beast, by the way). I've never tried RoR that much so I can't compare.

It depends on "how much fast" it will be possible to make it. Probably
not enough to be worth. It should be fast enough to make it usable in
production environment, but is that possible at all?
