Report generation times are greatly affected by:
1) the overall number of failing test cases (an output page is generated
for each of these).
2) the number of updated toolsets since the last report generation cycle
(some of the intermediate report data is cached).
3) used version of xsltproc/libxml/libxslt.
-- not to mention general factors such as processor load.
IMHO it's much more likely that the increase in the cycle's length we
are experiencing is due to one of these than the changes in question.
