I'm sure that some of the N800 owners can backup/flash/restore in 20
minutes, but I would really be curious how many people take over 90
minutes. I'm near there and have only had the toy for about 20 days. By
the time I'm finished customizing the application load, configurations,
ssh keys, and assorted other things, I will be well over that 90
minutes, and I'm sure many other owners are even more customized!

Anyone care to host a survey of all applications that we load and how
much time it takes to reflash/customize/restore? (Not to mention re-test
the restore!)
