Confronting Holocaust Revisionists

Between April and July 1994 937,000 people were killed in Rwanda, many by machete. The world yawned, of course.
As far as I know the near-million figure is not disputed (okay, I'm sure it is to an extent, but still). So it looks like a million people were killed by hand in 12 weeks.
Don't Holocaust revisionists scoff at the notion that 6,000,000 could be systematically killed in 5 years from a pure logistics perspective? I know that we're not expecting brain surgeons (or even a little logic) when we speak of Holocaust revisionists, but how do they confront this and other historical examples of mass murder on an enormous scale? If the Rwanda genocide was logistically possible why not the Holocaust? I mean, are they ever asked this question? What do they say?
