Yes scripter only generates an executable when the script changes.

I have been using a script manager to overload the scripts internally
the manager checks when the script changes content, then creates a new class name compiles it and loads it,but manages the access to the class/object through the management interface.
Then the next time the program runs the updated script becomes the new base.

I attach a sample program using that management class

Example :

  Dim myfile As String = File.Load(User.home &/ ".gambasscripts/ToLower")
  myfile = Replace(myfile, "next", "next\nPrint \"added at " & Str(Now) & "\"")
  File.Save(User.home &/ ".gambasscripts/ToLower", myfile)
  With Scripts
    !PrintAnything([1, 2, 3, 4, 5, 6])
    Print !ToLower("THIS IS BIG AND UCASE")
    !ListClasses()                                         ' check the list of classes
    Scripts("ToLower")                                     ' recompile the updated script
    Print !ToLower("THIS IS BIG AND UCASE")
    !ListClasses()                                         ' check the list of classes
  End With
  Print "The next time you run the program then the script is the original class"
