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.
