Make is certainly not slow for full builds. That is what I was

A build system can be amazeballs fast, but if you can't rely
on it doing incremental builds correctly in production, then
you're probably doing full builds every single time. Being easy
to use and robust is also pretty important.
I agree, but CMake/ninja, tup, regga/ninja, reggae/binary are all
correct _and_ fast.
