So, since I had to fiddle with this anyway I did measure cold and hot starts of
LibreOffice in an Ubuntu 14.10 VM:
                 cold   warm
mergedlibs       2.06s  ~0.8s
no mergedlibs    3.46s  ~0.8s

These times were handstopped, thus likely at least -/+0.2s (thus the warm
starts arent really worth anything) -- still a cold start of LibreOffice is
some ~70% faster on cold start. This is with a full distro build of
with full install (including java-foo) on a 8GB VirtualBox VM running on a
i7-2720QM/16GB host.
