It would be more like start each seed one at a time then start everyone
else. Then it is just 2 minutes after the last node joins.

In other words starting a six node cluster would not be that much faster
than starting a 100 node cluster if each had 3 seeds (I'm pretty sure it
would mostly be network overhead of gossip communication/peer discovery).
