I parse the build output in real time and note when "<target>:" lines
are printed to calculate time spend by each target and groups of targets
(targets with the same prefix). You can print some special prefix
following with the current timestamp (preferably
System.currentTimeMillis() - easier to parse), then parse output and
extract all necessary times. It will work with predictable target
execution order, which is not in my case.
