Actually, I'm still interested in the concept of what used to be called
"ed-times" but would now more logically be "static-bash-times".  I.e.
instead of giving a specific time, make it a multiple of this.

Did we ever look to see if this produced consistent results?  If not,
next time I do a build I'll calculate it for me and then we can try
asking a few people to submit them and see if it works.
