that's certainly something worth examining ...

I don't think CDE uses half the number of libraries that KDE does.

hmm ... this is an interesting statement - in my experience, once you
know and use DTrace, a lot of issues can be resolved much more quickly
then without (I ackowledge that "how much" is hard to measure instance
by instance ;-).
So would you rather invest your time learning something new that can
help you solve performance-related issues faster (among others), or just 
continues the way you've been doing so far?
