What?! I fully expected this to be production-ready.
Am I the only one not slacking off around here?

It looks like most of the main configury is done during the
build now. Other than that, some genius submitted this cool
patch that lets you compile all source files at once:


...but it hasn't been reviewed or committed yet. As with
the cross configury patch, I keep hitting [Refresh]
