I agree. I have a <javac> task that says "Compiling 2 source files...", at
the end of which it's around 750 files that were actually compiled.

It's too bad the compilers don't offer a flag that says "Print out the
name of each source-file you actually compile".

BTW: I have been testing incrementals using jikes, and it does appear to
do the right thing, without doing anything special other than having the
depends option turned on. (Ie., if I make the type of change to a
source-file that should require other dependent files to recompile, jikes
does recompile those files, even when only having been handed off the
newer source-file.)
