Yes, but remember, not all hardware is as fast as a multi-core Xeon
server. Build times can't always be controlled.

But I agree with you on all accounts. The bot owner should bear the
responsibility of his/her own unstable bots. If it brings less value
than it adds cost to the community, it should be moved to a separate
buildmaster that doesn't email people around, but can be accessed, so
the owner can point breakages to devs.
