Optimization thoughts

Scheduler (and hardware) of external build service is at its limits.
mls has some thoughts how to improve the speed, ideas are:
- use libsatlover and use .solv local format instead of perl
- rewrite expansion code in C

Both changes will have the effect that the backend will not be pure
perl anymore, but use C libs via perl xs bindings.
