first note that I never took time to comment on your 5 to 15 sec
evolution. now I do ;-)

the original value was 5, before you changed it. I think the 5 value
should be kept.
the 15 value is mostly needed for verbose smart units, such as
newhidups supported devices, which have (too) long startup procedures.
The problem is that some init systems will block the boot process for ie 15 sec.
The best solution would be to address such drivers startup time, ie by
dropping the initial update, and keeping only upon initups/info to do
an initial ping. We would then allow a longer time for the initial
data dump. Comments?
