DMD automatically tracks imports and loads all dependent modules that a source
module needs. By taking advantage of this we can speed up the build time of a
project and simplify the build script. See the discussion[1] in the forums.

-rb will be used to make DMD build all modules which it loads.

-rx will be used to exclude modules or packages which DMD should not build when
the -rb switch is present. This will enable fast incremental builds via an
external tool such as RDMD, as such a tool will be able to exclude prebuilt
modules from being built again by passing the module names via the -rx switch,
and passing the object files instead to enable proper linking.

-rx can take a fully-qualified module declaration, or a wildcard, via:

$ dmd -rxfoo.bar

This excludes the module foo.bar

$ dmd -rxfoo.*

This excludes all modules from the package foo.

From a few tests we saw build times improve by 30%. Adding incremental support
to RDMD (which needs these new flags) will significantly improve the build
times.
