Not sure that's such a bad thing: in my tests, I can start _using_
Firefox in Windows before our kernel even finishes to boot.

Beyond that, even if it doesn't shorten the boot time but allows the
user to enter the password, it is still a win: I can go get a coffee
while the darn thing boots, and be sure it's ready for me when I come
back. As it is now, it takes a minute to the point where I can use
Firefox from the time I enter the password! That's twice the time it
takes Windows to boot _and_ start Firefox.
