If you want programs like Beagle, F-Spot and Tomboy integrated, by all means write programs like them in an unencumbered language, and integrate them. You certainly don't need one of these crippled languages to write cool and innovative software.
If OO.o starts up faster than before, you can be certain it's not because they also have to start up a VM on top of everything else. I'm betting they don't start that up until you call something that needs it, or they start it in background so it looks like it's all up while that stuff is still flapping to get airborne. (BTW, doesn't Emacs define bloat any more?)
