--make might also need a lot more memory (.hi files are cleverly
demand-loaded when compiling a single module), and it also leaves you
rather exposed to space leaks in GHC itself.
It can also be slower when only re-compiling a small number of modules
in a large program.
However, nevertheless it *is* better in many cases. I'll add something
to that section of the docs.
