Re: autoload

Some first adventures with Bart's method. Proof of concept only, no checking yet.

The kosher method in .zshrc:

#autoload -U compinit && compinit -d $ZSHBOOT/zcompdump
#autoload -U colors && colors
#autoload -U select-word-style && select-word-style shell

... gives:

    $ time zsh -i -c exit  0.14s user 0.06s system 98% cpu 0.211 total

... now this, after having moved all asked for files into my private ZSHBOOT dir
and cooked them up with zcompile:

autoload -w $ZSHBOOT/zsh-boot.zwc
compinit -d $ZSHBOOT/zcompdump
select-word-style shell

... my thinking being that functions which are certain to be called are a good place to
start experimenting.

... gives:

    $ time zsh -i -c exit  0.05s user 0.06s system 97% cpu 0.111 total

... so with just those three autoloads it's twice as fast, saving a whopping 1/10th of a second. All of it in the 'user' category, I don't know if that's significant. Most interesting anyway, and so far it seems to work, tho I'd not be astonished to hear that I've broken something. It might be DOSthink, but I like having everything I need to
fire up my zsh in one place thusly:

3 HP-w5--5-Debian1 /aWorking/Zsh/Boot 3$ l

... of course there's more needed stuff as well no doubt, but this at least gives me
a bit of focus, and fpath is a single directory :-)
