Re: Opening a new tab is awkwardly slow

Okay, so I removed nvm from initialization and put the `git config` in the
background (should really move it to once per desktop session, but haven't
got an idea yet as to how I'd do that).

Also I added timing to the xtrace.

The biggest timesink seems to be that my `.zprofile` gets loaded twice and
thus `rbenv init` runs twice, which is kind of slow. The next would be
`compdef/compaudit`, but I don't even know what to do about them.
