I never thought of paring down the time to a bare minimum was an important goal to pursue, but maybe it is for some. I'd be more worried about over- or under-developing my films if I go too fast or slow pouring in and out my developer (on a 3.5-minute schedule); the fourteen-minute time I use with Delta 100 is a lot more forgiving if I have to sneeze and thus take twenty seconds longer pouring out the developer.
