A quick read of the paper and some of the rebuttals make me think that either way (recursive/non-recursive): * require about the same amount of makefile/dependency maintenance work from developers. * allow developers to be lazy in different ways with makefiles/dependencies.

The non-recursive make method may have a small advantage for developers using Git for their SCM because the Git operations are also performed at the top level due to Git's design.
