Re: Unit at time compilation mode III

It's true that unit-at-once could be interpreted to mean multiple files.
But if we enabled that, surely we'd want a separate flag for that to
distinguish it over doing whole files at once. I can imagine people being
concerned about memory usage in the case where we allowed multiple files.
Unit-at-once seems the right term. In particular, when Ada will use this,
a compilation may include many files for generics (=templates), sub-units etc.
Similarly, when you would use #include files in your C program, a single
compilation would also compile multiple files.
