As a data point for comparison: Some years ago, when I ran piuparts
tests on the archive myself, it took a few seconds to unpack the
piuparts chroot tarball.
An LVM snapshot or other such magic might be faster than that, but the
actual build or install test is so much slower that it is hardly worth
worrying about a few seconds.
