Yes, the eclipse compiler works like this: you pass a Classloader (for 
the class dependencies) and a Inputstream (for the source code) and you 
get a Class back. Everything happens in memory.

Keep in mind, though, that if you want to do autoreload, dependency 
checking can get *really* nasty, not on compiling but on classloading.

BTW, these issues should be solved by the block manager which isolates 
classloading contexts per block.
