Thanks a lot!
I notice two things:
1. Our profiling code is not prepared to such large running times,
and reports negative values of top-level callers
2. The feature.attributes rule takes 1706 060 000 time units, which
is 28 mins. It is quite in accordance with other measurements.

Okay, performance tuning bubbles up to the top of my Boost.Build priority
queue. I'll keep you informed of the progress.

Oh... that's pretty big project. Thanks for providing such a test.

I believe there's enough of profiling now. I'm about to turn long list
of properties into class, which would give vast possibilities for

I'll take a look.
