Gosh, I go on vacation for a week and I find this "controversial"
thread about builds and another even more controversial about RefPtr

Generally speaking, I have the not formed impression that this will
unleash hell and fire and will affect code readability.

I have another one. You can deploy IceCC distributed compilation and
CCache. This will work only for people in offices as they those are the
ones who can share the build time. If any of you comes from Cupertino
to the Web Engines Hackfest, we can help with the set up here as we use
it (at least me and some other folks at Igalia HQ) extensively.

And answering Chris about incremental builds, yes, depending on how the
bundling is done (dinamically or staticly per build session) it can
give make incremental builds much slower.

Best regards.
