Slow compilation when changes has been made to a dependency

Whenever a small change has been made to a library any project that depends on it inevitably takes a lot longer to compile.

Is there an explanation and are there plans for improving this along with other general compilation time improvements for kotlin-js?

@TorRanfelt Most likely this is a case of cross-module incremental compilation. Long story short, it is much harder to incrementally update dependencies, compared to updating the library itself.

AFAIK @tsvetkov is working on that.
