------- Additional Comments From stevel@apache.org  2003-10-22 22:33 -------
two issues here
(a) compilation is done by various tools -like javac- that even add in new files
to compile if they are imported. So ant doesnt even know all the files that will
be compiled.

(b) I have trouble thinking of valid use cases. It is too dangerous to do this,
as suddenly dependencies dont get picked up. And it wont work the way you want,
as inter-class dependencies complicate the game. 

If your compiler is slow, get jikes, from jikes.org.
