There is quite a lag because I do a fair bit of testing before release.
And, as you know, a single complete build can take hours. I normally
do many incremental builds and several complete builds before release
(and one complete build after release to try to catch bad uploads).
You'll see some of the process when I hit your server. It's more
important to get it right than get it fast. Plus it won't be obvious
but I reformat and document files I touch. So compare the difference
between one of the files you fixed such as wtc.c.pamphlet before and 
after and you'll see that I've spent time reverse-engineering the C 
code structure and documenting it. This has no effect on the generated
code (well, almost none. most comments are no longer sent to the C
compiler) but will make maintaining the system easier in the long run,
which is the whole point of pamphlet files.
