its definitely rescue.  It starts up N *directory traversals* rather than
N compiles in the *same* directory.  I looked at this the last time rescue
was borked and was positive it was the FOREACH in there peeling off N
items in a loop, but everyone told me I'm wrong.  Guess I'll have to put
some debugging echoes in there next time I get bored :)
