I guess, you meant that, for small n, the time of O(n) is dominated by
the constant.

Note that, obviously, the real time depends also on the constant hidden
by O notation.  Other said, depending on the range for n, an algorithm
of complexity O(n^2), or worse, can be faster (time) than another
algorithm of complexity O(1).  However, the scaling-up will be
different, obviously. :-)

Without concrete timings about Guix profiles, I would avoid to speak
about complexity. ;-) I bet that for most cases about profiles, the
concrete real time is dominated by the constants (I/O).
