I agree.  I have an '81 audi 5000 Diesel, and admittedly I have a
battery twice the size of anyone elses, but I left my lights(parking
lites only because it's an audi) on while at work once for 8-9 hours and
my car started fine(summer of course).  My car will crank for well over
a minute, so I don't see how a healthy battery could possibly die just
from accessory loads in just a few minutes.
