Then the system file cache will make it hard to determine reasonable 
figures for the first build. And I wonder how often long builds are run 
more often in sequence?

When we rely on an OS file chache, we can read all files entirely into 
memory, instead of using buffered I/O. Or we can design an interface 
that allows to run the compiler e.g. inside Lazarus, using the already 
loaded editor files and directory caches.

BTW, should we switch the thread topic?
