I have enabled "Scan for new items at startup". So digiKam
startup took 35 seconds on my old hdd. I moved all my photos
to a new SSD (I don't keep RAWs), and now digiKam startup
has been reduced to 28 seconds. ;)

But as you say: Waiting a few seconds can be neglected
compared to the long time editing photos.
But it is faster. ;)
