That was actually an interesting idea. It could be worth adding to the 
build system. However, adding an extra exec for all commands has a 
performance penalty, especially on Windows. (I'm not also sure how well 
the lock semantics are respected on cygwin.)

So, we could probably not make such a solution default, and then it 
really won't help David's problem: that people are sending him the build 
logs post-factum and hoping he can distangle them.
