A weeks worth of fulltime hacking, roughly. Perhaps a little more, and 
it would definitely require some serious testing with some seriously 
weird configurations so as to make sure it doesn't break anything. 
Ofcourse, CGI's would have to be hacked as well, but they would see the 
greatest speedups so that should only be fun.
