It's an issue with QMF. Setting up the initial QMF connection is very slow. I'm 
not sure why. It most definitely would be good to speed it up, it annoys me no end.

If you have a large number of operations to do, you can write your own client in 
python that sets up the QMF connection once, then uses it to do all the work. 
That's not particularly easy right now, qpid-config is not set up to be reused 
like that. It would be nice to have a little python API that mirrors the command 
line arguments to qpid-config. It would be even nicer to fix the real problem by 
getting the QMF init time down to something reasonable.
