Incremental compilation works very fast for me. The dependency 
management in ant is smart enough to see what needs to be recompiled.

As for the testing, i've also looked at modularizing the testing, and i 
think it will be a impressive undertaking to modularize it in 
subsystems. Can i expect it to fully work before judging its merits?

The tests can be modularized with the current system anyhow. Just create 
a category and you have your modularized system. No code changes.

The lenght of the QA is because we need to test everything. That will 
not change with the new modularization approach.
