Super-crazy idea, would it make sense to enable some R profiling
on the build system, and report what takes the most time ?
We already do so for the tests (total time per test iirc),
and it probably won't make sense in the daily builds,
but maybe similar to (or including) the longtests builds
around the weekends ?
I never did propoer profiling, so I am way out of my comfort zone
