So... I built rakudo star 2013-01 and wow... they are making progress!
My original measurements showed perl6 taking 553 times as long as perl 5 to start and consuming 27 times as much memory.
Now perl 5 is bigger and slower than back then, and rakudo is smaller and faster, so... perl6 takes only 50 times as long to start as perl 5 and uses a mere 8 times as much memory. I'm not trying to be sarcastic here... I really am impressed they've been able to improve it this much.
