Some more improvements come from these commits:

  ac19950507 gnu: bootstrap: Cache the 'bootstrap-executable' origins.
  5166d02730 gnu: bootstrap: 'bootstrap-origin' preserves eq?-ness when no 
changes are made.
  d727a9343d derivations: Don't memoize 'derivation->bytevector'.
  f5fca9a82c gexp: Cache the module to derivation mappings.
  c57e417eff store: Allow objects in the cache to be inserted and search for 
with 'equal?'.
  f58b45350b gexp: Add 'imported+compiled-modules'.
  f726f6f802 derivations: 'build-expression->derivation' caches its module 
  cf7648f882 derivations: Introduce 'imported+compiled-modules'.

This caches the module-to-derivation mapping, which wasn’t cached until

Overall the goal is to have the high-level caches work nicely (the
“object cache” in particular), rendering the low-level caches (such as
the ‘add-data-to-store’ cache) potentially useless.  This is beneficial
because a cache hit on the object cache saves more CPU time than a cache
hit on a low-level cache.
