Just as a minor point, I'd swap these two in priority. Our activity
load time is much more frustrating to me as a user than the web browser
render time, possibly because the web browser does incremental reflows.
(Which may in fact be the source of the performance problem..)

I somewhat agree, but as a side note `yum install make gcc gcc-c++` is
sufficient to turn your XO into a (slow) python build host, once yum
(slowly) finishes running. :)
