You may want to check one of my projects trying to bypass this issue in
different ways: either https://github.com/Vifon/texas,
https://github.com/Vifon/zranger and possibly
https://github.com/Vifon/deer. Specifically zranger is meant to reuse a
single ranger instance so there is no startup so it should fit your
needs. Sadly all 3 depend on zsh (texas has a partial Bash support
though) so it won't work everywhere.

Sorry for this self-promotion.
