Interestingly related to this discussion I read from the Meson twitter
account this morning "Switching to Meson made KornShell's build time
35x faster. Not 35 percent, 35 times." which is a pretty compelling

Maybe they forgot that make supports -j35

meson is "parallel" by default, make is not

And I fully subscribe to Dominique's comment, but that might be obvious
