     70The simple fact is that when you make a small change to a large program, it is often not necessary to recompile 
     71every module that depends directly or indirectly on something that changed.  In GHCi and `--make`, GHC considers every module in the program in dependency order, and decides whether it needs to be recompiled, or whether the existing object code and interface will do.
