It's my understanding that a re-compile is triggered by a mismatch to a
MD5 generated on the C string that is to be compiled and the cached MD5
for the expression. This would mean that only changes to that string
would force a re-compile. However, even formatting changes (even to
whitespace) in the C string force a recompile.
As I'm not that familiar, this could be just hear-say.
