If the FAD identifies some tangibles (hardware, etc.) that would help
alleviate some of the time problems, I can tell you that Spot and I
will do our best to procure them.  From what I've heard others
describe up until now, it doesn't seem like there's one clear
roadblock in that regard -- just a huge mountain of tasks that our
current systems have to chug through for composing, and no matter how
you slice it, it takes a lot of time and I/O bandwidth.
