I think it could be a problem if the user tries to use its computer while 
compiling PyQt. Since the compiler takes all the memory, it will swap and 
get very slow.

As far as I am concerned, firing a compilation and coming back 4 hours later 
to see if it is finished is okay. You just have to get used to it. And I 
really believe in compiler cache, it reduces the Qt's compile time from 22 
minutes to 4 minutes.

How about one source file per module. Sounds more reasonable to me. And I 
would prefer it as an option.
