I'd just like to add (before I disappear for the day).  That I spent the
first 4 years developing gdc on a netbook which had a single core Atom chip
clocked at 1.6ghz, with 4GB memory (upgraded from 2GB after building
libphobos unittester started consuming far too much memory).

Just incase anyone pulls out the 'takes too long to build' rabbit from
their hat.
