Would [Conditional] use through out also not allow us to perform the IDL compile without running the c preprocessor on each file? Can [Conditional] not be fixed to support multiple flags? The compiling of IDL is a significant portion of the total build time, and ccache distcc et al cannot

Re: [webkit-dev] support for navigator.cores or navigator.hardwareConcurrency

Naive question(s) here. Why does the physical number of cores ( and that is not necessarily the number of actionable native threads ) matter? I would expect a mature system to do the best it can with hardware, in what the software has asked for it. Some tasks are sleepy, some are IO bound,

I agree, the time taken to build is not really a good reason for the change or lack of - as you point out there, are many other ways to optimize the build process/server which will have wider benefits. But does anybody consider size to be an issue? SVG adds a fair chunk to the size of a binary
