Obviously your idea of cheap, fast hardware is based on the assumption 
that one is working on OpenWrt for pay rather than hobby. You're talking 
about at least $1200-1600 CAD which is a lot of money these parts, for 
the type of hardware you're talking about.

When I did have a job that involved work on openwrt (which I'm not 
entirely sure was worth it, for all that I got a couple gigs it wasn't 
with open source-minded companies and for that and other reasons was 
more frustrating than rewarding, for the most part, given that for 
openwrt was something of personal interest and I found the proprietary 
business interested tainted it for me, they say never mix business with 
pleasure, and for good reason).  I did buy better hardware, but that is 
now only decent, not the class of hardware you're talking about in your 
email (and while good, wasn't real server class, ever). At the moment 
OpenWrt is a hobby for me, so shelling out that kind of money, and 
finding a place for such hardware, isn't an option.

You're numbers are pretty bogus for the typical openwrt community 
member, although they ought to be importance to those who can justify 
that kind of investment as a business expense.

So the work on improving build speed, based on Felix's suggestion is 
still definitely something I think is worthwhile for the kind of 
situation I am interested in.
