Great!  In my VTK test case posted previously the times are now:

 real    0m17.653s
 user    0m16.292s
 sys     0m1.016s

 real    0m17.476s
 user    0m16.216s
 sys     0m0.916s

The commit message in

 cmTarget: Short-circuit language computation if context independent.

is particularly effective in explaining the problem.  The change
that commit makes removes most of the cost of the new feature
(generator expressions in SOURCES) for projects not using it.

We'll see how the change does on tonight's dashboard.
