        Normally, "must be improved upon" means by improving.org, but in this case, "obviously" means "left as an exercise for the community."

        On Knuth's scale, this exercise is about a 30. A thirty? Recall that a 30 entails "more than two hours' work ... or even more if the tv is on." Emphasis mine.

        Suffice it to say, I now realize that the reason scalac isn't more parallelized is so you can run a build while watching Hulu. Running partest, though, gives Hulu the jitters.

        The target test.suite.color could have been shortened to: test.sweet.
