You clearly exaggerated my point.

For example, if you have 100 Rcpp based files in your package. But you
just changed 1 file. To test this 1 file, you have to compile the
whole package which take the time to compile all the 100 Rcpp files. A
more efficient way is just to compile the file that was changed and
possibly other files that depends on it.
