I’ve noticed that when I’m only depending on modules from the standard library, my compile times are less than a second. Whenever I pull in a Cargo crate, my compile times shoot way up—in the linked example up to 12 seconds per file change.

(Posting on internals due to Steve’s very kind and useful suggestion; context.)
Will the soon-to-land incremental compilation help out with this issue, or is this something entirely else?
