Incremental test execution requires full impact analysis and is far more
complicated problem than tracking recompiled classes. For example,
changes to a method body in a main class does not result in
recompilcation of any other classes, main or test. You'd need to build
full dependency graph of all classes to tell what tests are affected by
the change. Then you have reflection, dependency injection, changes to
resources. Knowing what classes are recompiled is not nearly enough.
