I searched on this topic and got a couple hits but they were pretty old (2005).  As WM gets more efficient in using a larger percentage of our CPU time, I can see a build pause button becoming more important.

I have a quad core and plenty of memory, but my day job sometimes causes me to jump to other applications that sometimes can be rather CPU intensive.  I'm thinking a pause button may be a nice feature (if it isn't hard to implement.)

I wouldn't expect an implementation that freed up the memory WM was using -- just a pause/continue.  And this isn't a high priority and wouldn't want to slow down development just to get this feature. :D
