Well upgrading all the buildsystem and storage system to 10gigE, and
replacing the 10TB or so filer with something that has fantastically
fast disks would certainly reduce the amount of I/O wait time, but
that's going to cost a /lot/ of money.  We are still trying to find
where our bottlenecks are.  We had a pretty good handle on things prior
to delta rpms, but now we've gone from 3~ hour null composes (no changed
packages) to nearly 9 hour null composes.  There is obviously some
optimization to be had here.
