   I did that to give concrete idea of the times that were involved on
   fast computers, with concrete numbers.

I did a `make maintainer-clean' this morning and the full build took
me 1.5 hours.  I will spend the time when needed, but not otherwise.

      It is ok to tell people what bargains in reliability versus
      performance they can make.  It is not ok to assume that
      performance may never be an issue.

Yes, very true.

   ... it would be good to mention the _possibility_ of always using
   `make maintainer-clean' ...

Yes, that is reasonable for people with fast machines.  We should
encourage them.  But for others, we should be practical....
