How does it resolve preferences when 3 comilers are on PATH ? =)
dmd first?

And one idea that recently came to my mind since I'm a fan of
shared libraries. Would it work in D to say compile a shared
library and generate a number of .di files required to use it?
Similar to druntime that provides only a hand full of its
modules as .di or where necessary as .d files.

I'm looking for a perspective out of the "compile the world"
model in Dlang, since as far as I understand it, the D
front-end will always parse all imported modules recursively.
Even in single-file compilation mode, when only "app.d"
changed it would parse the whole thing down to the last corner
of all used D libraries like GtkD or vibe.d.

With the minimum amount of required .di files for libraries,
further private imports inside their modules are hidden away
from the compiler, thereby short-circuiting the "import the
world" recursion.
