  1. I still very much favor the idea of letting dmd itself gather dependencies while it compiles, rather than performing an initial dummy build (but this is of course still useful for change tracking as soon as partial compilation works correctly - I've seen you and Dicebot have been quite busy to fix that...)

It is a bit exaggerating :) There has been a hot discussion and with comments of Martin Nowak it now seems pretty clear what changes need to be done. But it means changing dmd AST model a bit and working with dmd sources is so unpleasant... Let's just say I am currently doing nothing about it but gathering courage to actually go and finish the job. Don't know how long it will take :)
