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").


I'll even go further: I'd say it should be possible to compile each
file in the absence of all the other files, producing a linkable binary
form that can then be put together into an executable by a more-or-less
standard linker.


What if file a.scm defines a macro that file b.scm uses (by refering
to syntax defined in a module declared in a.scm)?
