Believe me, that's easier said than done. I've looked at the source code
before my DragonFly time to investigate exactly this feature for system
packages. It also doesn't handle scripts at all, but that can most
likely be ignored. Have you looked at using the master/slave mode? It
should reduce the number of programs called a lot. IIRC there are that
many anyway, tar comes to mind and that should it be mostly.
