Hi Ludo,

Thanks for this nice blog post!

Who knows if an “HPC fool” would not write a ’package-with-tune’
rewriting the ’tune’ properties to all the packages and then run a
world-rebuild. ;-)

Well, the conscious choice of letting ’--tune’ operates only on packages
explicitly marked as “tunable” appears to me a clean design.  It makes a
an explicit and clear separation between “portable-optimized” packages
(almost all) vs “micro-optimized” packages.  The best of both worlds: as
much as possible reproducible, sacrificing for few corner-cases, keeping
the performance for all.
