[Robin S. Kurz] "And by the way, for the sake of memory usage and speed alone, getting rid of events would be a horrible idea. Since otherwise FCP would load the entire content of a library upon starting up. This way it is only loading the content of whichever event/project you have selected (but scanning the rest on open to check links, yes). Unless of course you do e.g. a search at the library level, in which case it reads everything i.e. projects etc. as well. I'm sure everyone has had to wait for the progress bar to finish when doing that. There you go."

I agree that's an issue with FCPX. However, it never was much of an issue with FCP "classic" and isn't with PPro or Avid MC. So doesn't that point to other "under the hood" issues? I'm sure thumbnail/filmstrip/waveform generation in FCPX is the biggest culprit here.
