Yeah.  For the record, I've used it too (don't recall what for exactly).
But I don't think it's worth adding yet another layer of complication for.

The main argument for it given in this thread is recompile cost ...
but TBH, I have one word for anybody who's worried about that, and
that word is "ccache".  If you don't have that tool installed, you're
missing out on a huge timesaver.
