I find this "unhelpful" when trying to place a measurement thread on an isolated cpu.

I find this interesting, maybe for the coming new devel system, I wouldn't
want to stick it in now right before a stable release though. Also, I
like this much better than full blown auto-tools, but I don't want to lose control over
the compiling process either. In otherwords, there should be some way to
override what the script detects.

Thanks
