I very much appreciate the work you do here, if regular developers
ignore the build time issues with buying faster and faster HW, then at
some point we won't be able to attract new contributors.

I know that some feel this makes debugging harder, as printing the
object will now show only a pImpl pointer and not the data members, but
then gdb can call method calls just fine, so calling the relevant
members isn't that hard, IMHO. (Or if it's a frequently used object, a
pretty-printer can be added.)
