1 package once in a while doesn't matter.

3.19 hours * many builds is equal to days and weeks.
The 5 sec is your guess, probably less but ... Minutia ends up being
quite a large sum when you repeat a process over and over.
The 2300 packages is a round of the number of packages Yaakov supports.
I was wondering when your side of the discussion would finally fail, and here
we have it.
1. You have provided no concrete examples, just some numbers pulled out of the
air. Look, I can do that too! 5 sec * 1,000,000 packages = 5,000,000 sec!
OMG PATCH IT NOW!
2. You specifically mention Yaakav, and you are right, he above probably anyone
would have the most incentive to see this "fixed". However he has made it
vividly clear that this "patch" (im quoting because you have also failed to
produce one so far) isnt need and wont be accepted even if you wrote it.
