Build Status Crates.io

This tool extends Cargo to allow you to build only the dependencies in a given rust project. This is useful for docker builds where each build step is cached. The time it takes to build dependencies is often a significant portion of the overall build time. Therefore it is beneficial in docker builds to build dependencies in a separate step earlier than the main build. Since the dependency building step will be cached, dependencies will not need to be rebuilt when the project's own source code changes.
