      If you don't change your colorscheme often, CSApprox.vim (again, thanks Matt for
      this wonderful plugin!) allows to take a static snapshot, which avoids the
      runtime penalty of translating all colors on each Vim launch; instead, only the
      generated snapshot is sourced.

      I have my own colorscheme, and here's how I generate a new snapshot whenever I
      have modified it (notice how I have put CSApprox in .vim/, not .vim/plugin/, so
      it's only sourced on-demand for this one-time conversion):

      gvim -c "runtime CSApprox.vim|CSApproxSnapshot!

      In my .vimrc, the following fragment detects a color terminal and then sources
      the snapshot. (Though this isn't strictly necessary, it falls back to the
      original, handwritten colorscheme when run in a plain terminal or the GUI.)

      let g:color_terminal = ! has('gui_running') && &t_Co >= 88
      if g:color_terminal
      " There may exist a high color snapshot of my colorscheme generated by
      " CSApprox.vim.
      colorscheme ingo-cterm
      catch /^Vim\%((\a\+)\)\=:E185/ " catch error E185: Cannot find color scheme
      colorscheme ingo
      colorscheme ingo

      This works well for me, so I would recommend such an approach to try in case
      you're concerned about the startup performance.
