Do you have experience with unified source builds on macOS? We 
basically never do these on Linux, but it's of course possible. These 
builds are typically great for production but terrible for development, 
since everything needs to be recompiled when any file is changed. Also, 
using static to mark functions as file-private no longer works. This is 
sure to cause headache. But the benefits may be worthwhile.
