Suppose you're installing glibc and you're wondering why it takes so
long to compile and how long it will continue. Then you see the
estimated build time, 9 bashies. You'd have to recompile bash to find
out how long that is.

The very short, short, medium, long, very long approach seems a lot
better to me, because someone can make a rough estimate for the time
required (eg. medium is one hour on a 486 100, 5 minutes on Athlon 1GHz,
so about 20 minutes on a P2 350).
