What do you consider to be 'quite acceptable'? I don't consider a 20
minute cleanup to be that. How long does a full update take? I
clocked a small one (20 files) at just under 10 minutes. It still
seems to me like a cleanup should be faster than an update, but I lack
insight into just what a cleanup does.

That's about what I would consider to be Very Large, which is about
the size of this tree. I wasn't the one who characterized it as
ridiculously large, hence my insistence that it wasn't. If our
definitions line up, but our experiences don't, then that would
suggest misconfiguration of our server, which is entirely possible.

That's true, but the coordination effort is higher, and the chance for
angst is higher as well.
I like to have my tools do what tools can do, and the humans do
everything else. Keeping files synchronized? That's a tool's job.
