The V2 architecture itself should be more optimizable. As the matters stand,
there are some aspect which were not optimized at all. Imagine a project where
all main targets are build with the same properties. For each main target
we'll process that properties over, looking for free feature, looking for
dependency feature, looking for propagated features, etc. My previous
profiling show that such manipulation take some time. It's not the only
problem, but you get the idea.

Yes, of course.
