It's a problem chjmodule is meant to solve (by only load'ing or
rebuilding a module again if it has changed).
Be aware though that it's still buggy, especially it doesn't always
reimport bindings if you reload a module. So in practice it may not
yet solve your problem, but I will make it work well as soon as I
find time (in a few weeks). Currently I use (namespace "") while I'm
developping a module (so the reimport bug is not an issue).
