Importing packages - reports

Sometimes we handle huge projects in SDL -about 350 IDML files with rather large TM's. This works fine, although the initial project creation takes a while, as does the analysis. But that is normal seeing the size of the project.

However, we've now found that importing packages takes long as well. This seems to stem from the fact that SDL creates a new translation count report each time we import a package, and recalculates the status for the entire project.
(our translators send several smaller packages as the work through the 300+ files).

This is a small nuissance as the task duration for the creation of these reports is about 13 minutes. So 15+ languages with several imports at 13 minutes each takes a while.
Is there a simple way to just import the packages without generating the report. We don't need them at that point in our translation process, so if we could omit them, the import would most likely be faster.

Kind regards,
