 Replying to [comment:9 quozl]:
 > Any instantiation of BundleRegistry() causes filesystem I/O and the
 setup of a change notifier for the Activities directory.  The cost is
 905ms tested on OLPC XO-1.5.

 yeah, makes sense
 anyway changing get_bundle() behaviour would be wrong idea I think,
 so it could be just new public method something like find_bundle()

 > Use of the D-Bus API ensures that no additional filesystem I/O is
 required, since the shell is queried directly.  Those other uses of
 BundleRegistry() presumably suffer from the same delay.  I question the
 value of just using the patch code directly in sugar-launch.
