From a "Joe User" perspective, I think delay rather misses the point.
reason for triggers is not to do stuff later, it's to consolidate
so actions don't need to be done multiple times.
Actually, as "Joe User" (me ;-) I'm wondering, why I get during an update
of let's say 20 packages the triggers message for man-db and menu not once
at the end, but several times every few packages. I thought, the idea is,
to let the triggers to the work once during one install.
