[gpodder-devel] Performance patches / splash screen

After some hours of hacking today, I've come up with two nice
improvements that are currently in development for gPodder:

 * Performance improvements
   Logging help for time measurement; changes to libplayers
   should make startup and loading faster; improvements to
   DumbShelve and other parts of the code should make initial
   startup and loading really fast; also: limit number of
   episodes per-channel (this is configurable); some podcasts
   really have a looong list of items, which slows down loading

 * Splash screen
   Best viewed when using a compositing manager; should
   make gPodder startup a bit nicer (??) What do you think?

Please test the attached patches (against the latest SVN trunk) and tell
me what you think. The difference between the two patches is simply that
one of them has the splash screen included and the other one has just
the performance improvements.

What do you think?
