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.
