When I tried that in August 2009 it only displayed that message once (at
least I think it did, but I'm pretty sure) and the time to resolve the
dependencies for ~900 packages with (using -U; all sodeps/provides and
not just readline iirc) went from 25 secs to 27 secs.

Could you stop the time so we can compare the results?
