Yeah, I see that as another rather large proposal.  It could make some 
other build tasks go faster too, even on x86, but traditionally we've 
pushed away from that because of the complexity it presents and concerns 
of reproducible results.  Then again this discussion was ages ago when 
the tech to do such things was youngish.
