Incremental mode is good because it doesn't have the loading of JVM
everytime. It becomes a larger problem when you load 6 jars as well.
Incremental mode in any way is great for rapidly fixing errors especially
when you are in a editing environment which lacks all the proper code
completion/intellisens/syntax checking that some other tools do (And yes I
know emacs has some of those features and they partially work - no where
close to comparable to some of the integrated IDE's thou). I have no
problem with the memorty overhead of a constantly in memory JVM but the
startup time can be painful.
