I have looked closely at the job (as in "Should I apply for it") and 
came up with the numbers I posted earlier in this thread.

Understood, but you are speaking for other people without naming them. 
Following in those steps, before sending these numbers, I spoke with 
another person who had earlier applied for the job and he thought my 
numbers were fine, and said nothing about "well above half-time 
initially". I also passed them by another party who had not considered 
applying for the job but has been following the discussion carefully, 
and he made only one tweak (which was reflected in the numbers I sent).

If you can get the people who made your impression to come forward with 
their estimates, that would help this discussion a lot.
