Is that a part of normal development process? Typically when I want 
incremental building, I'm editing a file, then rebuilding.

I mean, you check out a different branch, but you don't want to rebuild 
everything? I would. And with D, where there are so many templates, 
almost everything is going to need rebuilding anyway. This update to dub 
might replace a build-time problem with a build inconsistency problem 
(hopefully linker error, but possibly code generation differences).
