In the instant click-through era, research and researchers should
still be forced to wait days for each click?

Sci-hub is neither a library nor in a library. It is not a librarian
matter. And the "better future" has been embargoed quite long enough.

What it would be helpful if librarians did -- they have not done so
yet in any number -- is to see to it that the Copy-Request Button
<http://eprints.soton.ac.uk/268511/> is implemented in their
institutional eprint repository. That would reduce the wait for a
click from days to only hours or even minutes (and would moot or
temper the need for "large-scale copyright infringement...")
