building them into a ramdisk, which is still much much faster than an SSD
You really believe this? It is likely much slower because the ramdisk needs to be completely loaded into RAM (and maybe unpacked) before it can be used. If you only use part of the content (selected binaries) you are loading lots of unnecessary stuff and in the end this is much slower than loading only the needed files directly from an SSD.
