Please add crafting time to unit cards and assembler windows.

TL;DR
Add the crafting time to recipe windows in assemblers and other crafting machines, as well as to the unit cards on the right below the minimap.

What ?
Currently none of the crafting machines or unit cards show more than the materials required to craft whatever they're crafting. I would like to suggest that the time required is as much a resource as the materials required, and therefore should be listed as well.

Why ?
I think consistency is always a good thing, and so are less clicks to get the information.
If I want to look up the timing ratios for various interconnected recipes, like Engines and Electrical Engines, I need to either mouse over the item in the crafting window, or the recipe inside the machine. By adding the craft time to the unit card/resources list of the assembler, you would reduce that complication and increase consistency.

Yep that is an issue, which is why I've created a mod that shows crafting times. Check it out?

Great, I'll use it once I'm done with the mod-less map.
