During the development phase 24 hour defect turnaround is practical. I
would be extremely wary of fixes turned around quicker than that since they
plainly haven't been tested properly (some can be 'verified by inspection',
but that is a minority when you're talking about the kinds of problems you
encounter making a handset).
