Oh, neat. This reminds me of the incremental compiler server efforts
with GCC (https://gcc.gnu.org/wiki/IncrementalCompiler). We also briefly
played with this notion at Google a few years back.
The big blockers at the time were the tricky implementation details.
GCC's code base is extremely toxic to multi-threading and server approaches.
