that's not gonna work - you would have to keep the gmcs parse tree in
memory, identify which methods changed and then somehow reparse them.

However, as Miguel already said, that's just the tip of the iceberg and
this whole stuff will require way too many fundamental changes which
can't be done before 1.2 anyways, so this is more a theoretical than a
practical problem ....
