I found to my own dismay that compiling all kernels in sight is
overdoing it, once when I had 200 script generated kernel config
files in my tree :-)

Yes, a step between world and universe is clearly called for,

"make galaxy" nor what it could contain.

Let him who writes the Makefile magic decide that.
