I've written an ultimate heavy-parallel rebuilding tool. (Actually it's
so much parallel that Fedora infrustructure, git repositories namely,
spontaneously fails.) It's packaged in `perl-Fedora-Rebuild' package,
there is sample executable `rebuildperl'. Currently it's
under-documented, not optimized and with some internal bugs. But I will
develop it more because we need it for each year Perl rebuild, so the
tool will improve.
