I think it's usual in most modern language systems that when module A does
"import module B", the compiler has access to information about the public
objects exported by B. For example, I would expect it to know what public
functions are present in B and what their signatures are. Equally, I would
expect it to know which of these functions are deterministic. This doesn't
require the modules to be compiled at the same time; it merely requires the
compiler of module A to have access to information generated by the compiler of
module B, for example some kind of interface definition, often added to the
object code for this purpose.
