Since there are plenty of applications in progress simultaneously (and,
I expect, there will always be), requiring two months of work for each
one before thinking that two months delay for each one is reasonable
seems a little excessive, especially since anyone who might conceivably
be responsible now or in the future for creating Debian accounts is
always going to have a number of other tasks to do.

I have lots of bugs which individually could probably be solved with a
few hours' work, but that doesn't mean I can solve the whole lot in a
few hours, or even deal with them all in short order. This doesn't
really say anything much about my "respect" for these bugs (whatever
that might mean).
