Pretty sure time savings in routine tasks matters to most pros - does for me, in any case. For hobbyists, though, it seems like less time spent doing something that gives them pleasure would be a net negative. And given the hobbyists dramatically outnumber the pros here, it seems like 'saving time on final smoothing' should be firmly in the 'minus' column for most of us.

Frankly, I am worried...if we continue to laud time savings at leisure tasks for amateurs as something positive, how long can it be before other pleasurable activities follow suit?

"Done in 28 seconds! New record! Hey, hon, can you fix me a sandwich?"

"Had that beach house for the 1-2 PM block...best vacation ever!

"Dude...what a game! The other team was a no-show...awesome!!!!"

Easy to see where this sort of thing goes...
