The first line of your source code has to read

#include "pch_header_file.h"

if you want to use precompiled headers and sometimes I simply can't or
don't want to modify an exisiting source file to include this line.

As your were asking for performance, a question comes to my mind.
Will you be able to do batch builds in V2? Which means if two or
more source files end up with the exact same command line for
compilation they are all passed to the compiler in one go.
