Thanks. I put a *lot* of work into making it faster.

Good point to bring up: one of the things I've tried to do with mock
0.8.x is to keep the '/etc/mock/defaults.cfg' file up-to-date with the
latest config options that are available. So, if you want to know any of
the configuration file options that can be set, look in there and you
should see examples of how to configure them. All the options are either
self-explanatory, or have blurbs.

Also, I have tried very hard to keep the manpage up-to-date as well,
documenting all the cmdline switches. So, one of the areas that mock
0.8.x has improved is the documentation.
