We could implement the /target:module option (which is a wish-list item
right now on bugzilla) to achieve a similar effect.

Another possibility is using assemblies instead of modules, you can
compile with:

	mcs /target:library a.cs b.cs c.cs

And then link it:

	mcs -o proggie.exe d.cs /r:library.dll

We have identified the parts of MCS that are consuming a lot of CPU time
and a lot of memory, but we have not yet made changes to modify this.
