It's not that it's long, it's that it has to be done at all. Even without a build process (or one like ours that takes at most 5-10 seconds) it still takes longer than finding the line of code you're concerned about and setting a breakpoint within the debugger itself.

To each there own as to how setting breakpoints works best for them in their workflow--my only reason for commenting was to let people know there were other ways to set breakpoints than adding "debugger" lines all over their code.
