IANAE, but I really don't see why there should be any problem with this
sort of thing.  Compilation is a pure userspace and conceptually
simple (from a low-level, hardware standpoint, albeit technically quite
complicated from a higher level, algorithmic perspective) task, and I
don't know why there should be any more of a problem suspending and
resuming it than any other userspace process.

Just my $.02, and I may be completely wrong, in which case I do hope
someone will kindly correct me.
