At the speed of today's computers, choosing 'modules' as the grainyness
level to do seperate compilation seems out-dated.  Creating a way to collect
modules together (call them packages for lack of a better term) and having
seperate compilation at the level of packages instead of modules would
probably be a better tradeoff point these days.

I know of people who have their 'build' scripts concatenate all their Ocaml
source files into one large file before compiling anything; the resulting
compilation time is still very short, but the corresponding executable is
significantly faster!
