Would this be a better fit for Fork/Node (currently available in
contest builds)? I don't understand fully what was just said, but it
seemed like it could apply at a minimum to incremental mode in
fork/node. Magnum currently has that source, while I am
finding/documenting bugs for it (lot's so far fo cygwin). Nonetheless,
sounds like a great addition/patch!
