Yes, it might very well be lost on people. Would you mind walking that slowly for those of us not getting it?

FWIW, I'd be on board with a proposal for a "trivial build system"
interface to be supported in various toolchains with the same command
line and options. Maybe we can even convince our toolchain vendors to
include such a tool. I think focusing on the compiler executable
specifically as the one having to implement that is a mistake.

Is it lost on people that what we currently call the compiler is already such a trivial build system? And that it's been that way for some decades.
