After looking at the code and profiles, it's going to be hard to do a
lot better unless we change the internal representation of category
items.  We're spending quite a bit of time doing string comparisons;
we'd have to adopt some kind of internal indexing to do much better.

Whether that's worthwhile is another matter, but it might improve
startup as well.
