Ditto. (Basically). Rewriting the uri parser in cgi.d brought its 
build time from about 3 seconds down to 0.6. Which still feels 
slow, especially next to my minigui.d, which can do 0.3 since it 
broke off from Phobos entirely! (It was 2.5 seconds before).

Amen. I have boxes that have infinite D build times because it is 
impossible to run the sloppy compiler!
