I think most of developers do not have time to manually change such
files. How about excluding from this all-in-one file automatically all
source files which were modified <1 days ago?
Which reminds me of another trick I used at work when building large
projects. By default build system compiles files in order specified in
Makefile/other control file. If I was working on one header and one
source file and there were other files dependent on this header, build
system rebuilt them in this static order until it got to source file
corresponding to header file, while often if there was an error, I would
change header again and go through rebuilding all these files again. So
I changed list of compiled files to be autogenerated in order of
modification time, so that file I am working on is compiled first. This
saved me a lot of time :)

already done, ignore these remarks :)
