I've never had one before because I've never really spent any time or money toward travelling to a place where I'd need one. we're not all seasoned global travellers like you, james!
My daughters boyfriend got an offfer to go build an arial tramway on the island of Dominica and needed a passport in a real hurry. My daughter and him went to Hartford, Ct. (some sort of regional office that offered the hurry up servide, not available everywhere) and got his in one day. I think it was marginally more expensive, but worth the few hour drive to get him on his way.
Maybe something like that is available for you, Gonz, if you really need it in a hurry.
