Note that this wouldn't solve all the issues, we would still need
an equivalent for propagated phases, to set any environment variables
Moreover, note that the reason the current system was introduced in the
first place was to avoid the quadratic builds. I suppose this is less of
an issue in go-build-system due to the order-of-magnitude difference in
compiler speed on typical source code.
As for re-using build artifacts, once we figure out how to do it, we can
always revert this patch, together with the one that originally added
cargo-inputs. I don't think it's going to be any time soon, though, as
upstream doesn't support this style of building.
