well it's often the resizing down to what's needed for display where the time is being taken. though it wasn't helped that Winamp in a number of cases was pulling the image from the tag a couple of times and re-processing on every instance which for very large images is noticeable.

so the internal builds now instead will cache the request from the file / lookup service and provide that for subsequent requests until a different file is asked for. since some of the requests are for different information, so it's possible now that the initial lookup is slower as all of the origin stuff and a few other things will be calculated, but more time is saved in the following requests made as we're not re-doing all of it over and over again (so slower one time to be faster for multiple times afterwards).
