While it might be possible to do that, it isn't implemented and I
generally dislike the idea. There are rarely is a point for this, since
the situation where you want to do this typically overlap 100% with
doing limited builds. If you do a limited build anyway, most of the
advantage of avoiding some builds disappear.
