If I combine addons that almost never get updated, I reduce the addon count on my site. Will that ease the strain a little?
That's the thing. He doesn't have that many, and even when he did, although it caused issues on some hosts, it didn't cause issues at all on the VPS he's on now.Probably not, as the database queries will still be needed.

You can turn off the "Careful Rebuild" option, but it will mean that you'd have to do a manual rebuild when you make changes (I think). But that's only an issue for us now that 1.1.4 has the white screen of death sorted. So the idea would be you make a load of changes then manually kick off the rebuild when you're done, I think.
