It took me about 3 weeks to review ~270 patches for alacritty and it was
easily more than 20 hours.

I suppose it's not that much different than updating all the GHC
packages in one go, except that they're more interconnected. I suppose
we could throw them all into the crates-io module and then hack on all
270 packages at once in a separate branch. That certainly would be easier
than adding them one at a time.
