VS 2012 startup performance with R#7 installed

I know, it's an old subject, but it kind of doesn't go away.

I've just installed VS 2012 and R# 7.
Before installed R#, VS took 1-2 seconds until it was responsive, and another 3 seconds for the (big) solution to open and show a previously opened file .
Now, with R# installed, it takes 6-8 seconds until VS offers the Start Page with the list of recent projects. About half that time is actually spent with an empty workspace in VS until the R# menu item appears and the Start Page shows up. Loading the solution with R# also takes about 8-10 seconds.

I figured, I'd post here first before starting a feature request.

Hello Michael
     This is a known problem and we're constantly trying to optimize ReSharper load times, but there are certain actions that ReSharper needs to perform at startup and when solution is being loaded and there's no way we can reduce time taken by these actions to zero. Thank you!
