I would go even further and consider enabling unified builds only in 
DEVELOPER_MODE (for CMake ports). For non-developer builds, compilation 
time is much less important than limiting RAM usage to reasonable 
levels. Using ninja's default parallelization level, I recently started 
hitting OOM failures even on a machine with 64 GB RAM! We have many 
people complaining that they cannot build on more normal machines with 
16 GB RAM. If we have an EWS to ensure the non-unified build actually 
works, then it should be safe enough to make it the normal supported 
path for non-developers, rather than just a "best effort, let's hope it 
works today" thing.
