I disagree.  I think some thought should go into having a
multi-threaded system for building projects.  If we had a dependency
tree worker threads could transverse the tree and compile near
instantly.  Having a linear compile for projects so 1980s.  With CPUs
and memory on all new computers in the gig range... I say it's time to
start thinking about commercial users :-)
With a multi-threaded system for compiling and reporting status, I
believe that native compilers would be completely justified...  But
it's kinda like the chicken before the egg, again isn't it?  How
ironic to say the least.
