Hmm, I haven't really experienced that much delay in load time. Also
this largely depends on the type of application. An application that
opens a lot of new windows frequently, or is itself started/exited
frequently suffers much more from this than one that only has a
mainwindow and maybe another dialog or two or is only started once per

storing the .ui file in an egg and using it from there. Been there, done
that, worked out nicely.
