Description Zac Medico gentoo-dev 2018-03-23 16:25:11 UTC
For cases when time is of utmost concern, it would be nice it emerge had a --speed option to optimize the default dependency resolution parameters for speed. Since --speed will modify default parameters, it should also be possible to specify --speed together with other options that override the --speed defaults. Some parameters that --speed could affect are:

* --backtrack
* --complete-graph
* --autounmask
