Well, in principle it is sensible to attend demands, and I was tempted
several times to implement it in OGRE as well, copying your solution.
I didn't do it in OGRE for 3 reasons: [counter-]recommendation of
upstream, lazyness, and the power of hindsight after experiencing some
of the problems that we're having in OSG (more complexity in rules and
in general, resources in less powerful architectures, and the
invalidation of ccache --handy in largish packages, as this one--).
You didn't have the 3 excuses, certainly not the lazyness ;-)

Thank you for all of the heavy lifting!
