I'm not interested in performance alone. I want to work on generalizing
nodes beyond just files and aliases. For example, merging configuration
into DAG proper. If makefile generators will be main focus in the
future I'll just give up on contributing because configuration/build
separation interferes with such generalization of nodes. Originally it
resulted from low extensibility of make utility so people extended it
with ./configure scripts which aren't integrated into DAG. Removing
this historical artifact is what I want to work on.
