Yes. He did so in the context of showing that *there is no precise
number* that universally applies for the amount of effort required.

Add as many numbers as you like, provided they're all in the same broad
range. That is the point, and showing there are multiple numbers in play
is *supporting* Steven's point.

I still don't know what point you had, but I'm not really interested any
