I won't pretend to understand all this internal stuff, but with my
familiarity with C/C++ IDEs, they handle the dependencies throught the
header files.  Why can't we have a switch that will reload
automatically in the IDE according to dependencies which could be
traced through the import statements?  Is this too naive?
