I think you mean "can take a long time".  I have done re-reviews for
renames in an hour because someone asked me to.  Typically a re-review
is much quicker than the initial review.

As discussed on IRC, an important benefit of a re-review is the
insurance that the Obsoletes and Provides are done properly.  It is
easy to get this wrong, so another pair of eyes in the process is a
good idea.
