memo: comparing pbuilder with tmpfs and cowbuilder


Test: build GNU hello 20 times with pbuilder/cowbuilder

pbuilder (with tmpfs)
 real 9m11.320s
 user 5m10.215s
 sys 1m21.989s 
cowbuilder
 real 8m31.191s
 user 4m27.629s
 sys 1m15.661s

Conclusion: probably it's better to use cowbuiler (at least for me)
