That implies at one reason for the verbose loading messages: modules
that your code depends on do not get reloaded:

  > (enter! "x")
   [loading /tmp/x]
   [loading /home/eli/plt/collects/racket/lang/compiled/reader_rkt.zo]
   [loading /home/eli/plt/collects/syntax/compiled/module-reader_rkt.zo]
   [loading /home/eli/plt/collects/syntax/compiled/readerr_rkt.zo]

... edit the file ...

  > (enter! "x")
   [re-loading /tmp/x]

          ((lambda (x) (x x)) (lambda (x) (x x)))          Eli Barzilay:
