Hopefully, not quite as long, given the work upstream was doing to make
trouble for Oracle when they were building 7.

But it's not like I'm in a real rush.... This would be for home, for my
workstation, for my antique (2009) HP Netbook (I use when I travel for
email and news). Not sure what I'll do when my new lady and I build her a
new system, since she wants Linux.
