Apparently, it did get a little better under Helix GNOME. I can't put a
number to it, but it feels like a 10-30% speed increase in menu snap-to,
max/min-imizing apps.

I'm not sure I get this portion. Taking a tarball and applying that
command spits out an RPM?

I see this,
  rpm [-b|t] [package_spec]+
  rpm [--tarbuild] [tarredsource]+

But not that '-tb' command.
