> - startup time (if you write things that are script-ish in nature, this is really annoying)

Just compile your code to native using a native code compiler for JVM bytecodes. There are quite a few to chose from.

So scalac and then another compiler after each modification? That's speeding up startup, but slows down development even more.

Of course you should only compile to native code when making the package to distribute the scripts.
