I personally don't think it's a dumb idea at all. The problem is the
sheer volume of ports out there. I don't see why the hooks couldn't be
put in place, though, and let the port maintainers add to it slowly.


I agree with both you guys. Having this option would greatly reduce compile 
times which would be beneficial for everyone.
