Or maybe automatic reparse (with a brief message) based on file timestamp.

BTW is there any support for switching the buildfile to use?

Another thing that might be useful for Emacs geeks: a "M-x antsh" that would
run antsh in an inferior comint shell, and also run
compilation-shell-minor-mode. So you would not have to worry about command
completion in antsh itself, and build errors (assuming antsh set -emacs
-Dbuild.compiler.emacs=true) would be hyperlinked.
