In my experience, what those lines are doing is far more important,
but generally you will be impressed.
My little Vim script project is now 38,000+ lines/1.2Mb of script (not
including enormous spell check dictionaries). I find just a very few
of those lines matter in terms of start up speed. Setting variables
and defining functions is very fast. Extensive syntax highlighting
patterns and complex window management can be a little slow but even
with all our project's ridiculousness, gVim is spectacular on any
modern machine. (I use a P3-450 at home just fine.)
I'm a big fan. ;)
