All of the benefits I've thought of from running dinstall more often

not really important right now, but anyway: britney's time-complexity in
regards to the number of packages she has to work on is really bad, son
Err, not really. Britney runs take around 20 minutes on newraff.
(Or, if you're going to be a pedant, the NP-complete portion of the
algorithm is in practice a fairly quick, constant time step -- since it
requires major changes to the archive to change in any significant way
and takes about a second for the current archive on newraff -- repeated
roughly O(N^2) times. That's not highly complex, even when you're a pedant)
