c# background compilation

If you Google c# background compilation, a few posts out there talk
about R# doing this. I'm presuming they mean compilation as far as
generating feedback in the editor, but not actually writing new
assemblies to disk ... right? Or am I missing some huge feature of R# I
didn't even know was there?

Eclipse's JDT background compilation actually writes the .class files if
I'm not mistaken.

Hello Chris,

yes, ReSharper's 'background compilation' is simply an analysis of files
currently opened in editor for errors and warnings. Although this
process bears some resemblance to actual compilation, it is quite different
in many aspects (and doesn't involve generating any binaries).

Ok. While I'm sure it may be practically impossible for y'all to do, I'd
love it if R# could do this. Doing TDD is a pain having to wait for
assemblies to get re-built and written to disk. Incremental compile
inside Visual Studio helps, of course, but it's nothing compared to the
responsiveness of Eclipse.
