Right now, it's awkward to hack on toolkit/ using Gradle.  Let's fix that.

The `mach build faster` name seems ambiguous to me – faster doesn't really indicate why, what's going on under the hood (especially what it's not building), and when you'd use it. Are there thoughts on alternative names?

Agree, but it's glandium's name and it's all locked in.  As for what's going on, only notes I'm aware of are at https://groups.google.com/forum/embed/#!topic/mozilla.dev.platform/TJq7GHr5MM4.  This is very much work in progress.
