1. C-c C-r C-m is not /that/ slower than C-c C-c C-m ;-).  You only
select the region once (with C-c C-t C-r) and it persists until

2. I did not get your second part.  AFAIK, it is impossible to compile
just one file in the document and still get the whole pdf as a result.
I agree with backward search, it might not work (I don't know, I hardly
ever use it – I have C-s and C-r and don't feel the need for it...).
