Is there any benchmarking regarding which packages take more to load than others?

Of course I know it depends on the computer you are running and perhaps even your Internet connection if you are loading them "on the fly", but that's why I'm asking for a benchmark... Does anyone has actually taken the time to measure what packages take more to load? Could this be considered a good point to speed up my work?

What would you do with the result? –  Christian Feuersänger Oct 31 '13 at 22:16
I would like to know if, for example, titleps loads faster than fancyhdr –  Mario S. E. Oct 31 '13 at 23:05
