program launch time improved?

Has a disk, io, or some other subsystem been affected lately that would
drastically improve program loadtimes from a freshly booted system (I'm
amd64). Over the last few weeks, when launching my typical apps after
a fresh system boot (Firefox, emacs, tclsh...) the load times until
a display/s were l-o-n-g. Typical scenario would be what appeared to
be an inordinate amount of disk activity before program launch. Since
~yesterday, it seems things are *dramatically* faster.

Apologies for the really subjective mail, but am curious what's changed,
and this description may be enough for the people who changed [whatever]
to say "That sounds like something I could have affected." Whoever the
responsible people are, keep up the excellent work!
