Could you give a bit more details. The profile you've sent to me off-list
tells bjam takes 13 seconds to start up, which, of course, it not good. What
time would be acceptable?

Also, is your stree-test script representative of your project. I'm asking
because I've found O(n^2) algorithm in V2 which might be the reason why it's
does not scale well with the number of targets. However, this algorithm does
not scale when you add many sources to a main target. E.g one target with
1000 sources is worse for it than 20 targets with 50 sources. And 1000
targets case is not very typical.
