Well, these aren't disks (essentially zero seek time), so I'd expect
random access read performance to be extremely fast.  Random writes,
on the other hand, should be terrible.  I didn't have a lot of time to
benchmark this before heading home so I just ran bonnie++ but I left
off some options and the second line of results was entirely filled
with plusses.

But anyway, I was merely responding to the comment about SSDs
rendering this discussion moot.  Obviously disk access speed is a
factor in startup time, but I don't think it's anything close to the
dominating factor.
