With a permanent staff of only 36 people, the congregation is limited in what it can tackle at any one time. That's one reason documents and decisions are not churned out quickly, but take years to develop.

An interesting point. I always wonder why the Holy See is so slow, but this puts it into perspective. Also, even if they had more people working there, that doesn't necessarily make things easier. The documents of the Church will be pored over for millenia, and they are probably very cautious about releasing anything too soon or without sufficient thought. Didn't the Council of Trent last something like 20 years? The massive size of the Episcopate probably makes things harder, not easier, with collegiality and all.
