If I may chime in although I'm not actually writing the code ;)...

To me, this extra time is acceptable because:

 - it is only at export time; it will not affect the GUI's overall fluidity
 - it is still O(N), will not drastically change the export time
 - (specific case of Marked Packets) since marking is manual, the number of
marked packets is typically small; hence computing their dependencies should
not be a big task

My 2e-24 euros ;)
