What compilation time?!  Anything large (open office,
kernel) I leave overnight, I don't see anything
compile so there is no time lost.  Anything small I
leave running whilst doing other things, I don't see
the massive problem it causes me.

For some things (kde included) you can just emerge the
binary, if you want. Oh, and if you're using debian
you'll probably have to wait a little longer than 24
hours, more like 24 months ;)
