With two hour buildworlds (from scratch) I was planning on rebuilding every couple of weeks. If using -DNOCLEAN can significantly reduce my buildworld time, I'll rebuild weekly and do a full build every fourth week. I'm anxious to give this approach a go and see how much time I can save on the buildworlds.
