Wait, what? -- Andrei

If build time becomes long enough that it forces you to switch the mental context, it is less important how long it takes - you are much likely to do something else and return to it later. Of course it can also get to famous C++ hours of build time which is next level of inconvenience :)

But reasonably big and complicated project won't build in 5 seconds anyway (even with perfect compiler), so eventually pure build time becomes less of a selling point. Still important but not _that_ important.
