Older compilers would compile slower, but they would still work perfectly

Of course, we could try to support older compilers without PCH a bit
better for a while ... with some sort of special #ifdef, but it would
still be a temporary tweak, as I think the final setup (maybe years from
now, but we plan long term) would be to just #include
