How can we improve the Windows dev platform?

Only compile XAML as needed

When building a UWP project, editing any file in the project results in every XAML file being re-compiled, regardless of if the file references anything in the changed file. In smaller projects, compilation happens fast enough to not matter. In our project with ~200 XAML files, MarkupCompilePass1 and MarkupCompilePass2 combined take 79 seconds.
