Do you think it might work if it did dmd -H and make the 
auto-generated .di file and then did a content-based change 
detection on them for recompiling dependencies?

It'd prolly still do more work than it has to, but seeing .d 
changed, rebuild .di, if .di changed, rebuild other stuff might 
just avoid full rebuilds upon just simple function body changes.
