Excellent point Mark.  A true GUI tool (as opposed to basic WebFacing) 
"c"ouldn't be running in a interactive subsystem.  Therefore compiling 
something interactively from a GUI tool should not hit your interactive 
load.  And it's not like the bad old days of slug processors where it took 
several minutes to compile a program.

I can still remember a programmer getting the riot act from a VP because 
his compile killed the system (way back before we had a development 
machine).  I think we "pantsed" the other programmer who narced on him.
