To be honest, I’m not hardly going to feel particularly bad if one of the most compilation heavy packages that exist takes a whole 10 seconds to install from a VCS checkout.
Rebuild latency is really important. People get really cranky at me when I argue that we should get rid of "editable installs", which create much greater problems for maintaining consistent environments, and that's only saving like 1 second of latency.
I don't recall this being discussed. Is support for editable installs being considered for removal? Either way, what is the argument out of curiosity?
