Aha, I was getting annoyed that starting the CLI seemed to be so slow, even when just printing the help message. Turns out it is b/c the numba code in step4 was jit compiling the jit flagged functions. I'm gonna comment out all numba code for now, and we can add it back in later if we find its worth it for big speedups. And if so, maybe we can make it compile only when running the relevant code. CLI starts up way faster without it.
