I understand that this is not as interesting anymore since gyp is gone and
Windows is a smaller platform than it used to be, but for the record, I've
kept working on it in between other things and the total gain is about 7
minutes, which is better than the 25% estimate.
This is in chromium land with the patch in http://pastebin.com/90vx4sep
and the script in http://pastebin.com/WmzGY8zs. Both are pre-blink so they
should look familiar, though they apply to gyp files which are gone.
Neither have been cleaned up so they are a bit embarrassing but if someone
wants to keep working on this in WebKit they might be a good starting
To do in that case:
* Port to the new build system for Windows.
* Test compile a lot of platform and verify gains in Windows.
* Integrate the idltopath.pm map generator into the build system.
