Good question. Hard to answer, though, without a specification of what spearate compilation is... :)


IMHO separate compilation means compiling two files with two different
instances of a compiler, i.e. there's no direct communication between
the separate compiler runs, as opposed to compiling several separate
source files in the same compiler-instance (for example by compiling
stuff into an "image"). It's an unfortunate accident
of history that the latter is so prevailing in the landscape of Lisp
and Scheme implementations.
