Well, I would not mind a decrease in boot time, too.
The more it decreases, the better. :-)
To be honest: in my version I only used 1 bit bitfield entries for
boolean values, but 8 bit values (aligned on byte boundaries)
for other values because as far as I know, most (all?) cpu
architectures will need more time to extract some bits from
a machine word than to extract a byte.
I have no idea whether this makes a difference in performance
as I did not run any runtime benchmark.
