 To be honest, I’m no fan or build systems. A compiler that doesn’t figure
 out dependencies and how to make a executable from it all for itself, is
 just deeply wrong in my eyes.

 This is essentially all you should ever ''have'' to do, no matter how the
 sources are structured:
  {{{ compile $allExternallyCompiledParts $allMySourceDirectories }}}
 (Of course what you ''could'' do, should include optimization, to what to
 compile it and code checking / debugging. But that should be it.)
