Fair enough--question though re. Jikes: if you simply ask it to compile
every source file, will it correctly compile only those it needs to, and
not up-to-date sources, even though you explicitly requested them? Or is
it necessary to _only_ give it some entry point(s) such as main classes
to make sure it is lazy enough?
