Great question! The 'config.init' time represents the time it takes
to dispatch the event during creation of the configuration object. The
database query actually takes place after that event finishes
dispatching. Typically this means that there's actually a very fast
'php_pdo' call right after the 'config.init' call where the
lazy-loading occurs. Here are some screenshots: http://imgur.com/a/jOcEF
Of course, this is still very much an alpha version of the module.
If you have any suggestions about how you'd like to see TraceView hook
into configuration management, let us know!
