True, but I'm not sure that affects compile times...

I didn't actully mean I never had a project that large, only that I 
never had an app that large (and I wouldn't build one.) The project I've 
been on lately has hundreds of stacks and thousands of support files 
with gigabytes of data, they're just not all in the main app. It's 
easier that way. The app itself takes under 15 seconds to compile. The 
heavy-duty working part has maybe 3500 lines of backscript, four 
behavior scripts, three substacks, and maybe 100 small images. 
Everything else -- the actual content -- is distributed among separate 
module stacks that each contain the images, media, text, etc. that are 
relevant to that stack. But I don't have to compile those.

Using a single main app to run the whole shebang makes revisions very 
easy, we just upload new content stacks to the server and the main app 
pulls them down as needed.
