This is hrev49872.
I noticed a long delay (> 2 sec.) before the boot logo appears. It turned out, that I had over 200 subfolders in /system/packages/administrative/. After removing everything but the newest 20 of them, that delay disappeared.
Of course I don't need 200+ fallback states and I don't have a problem deleting those from time to time (until some prefs panel will allow me to set up an "auto-clean" maybe in the future).
I was wondering though, why it's even an issue to have many fallback-states when booting. Surely this list of fallbacks is only of interest when entering the boot options and not for a regular boot?
