Would it be an alternative to switch to DDD - Documentation Driven Development, a sibling of TDD, Test Driven Development, but even before you write the tests, which by TDD is before you write the code, you write the Documentation!

Once you have documented all the externally visible method signatures (as well as the implementation architecture, data structures etc.) and then written tests bases on these, then the need for declaring a compileable interface definition is significantly reduced. It won't take you any more resources to start out with the documentation, instead of delaying it until the coding is complete. Quite to the contrary: Good documentation may help speed up coding, when you know where everything fits into The Big Picture. (I take for granted that you do write proper documentation of the system you create.)

(And then I will return to doing the last checks of the documentation of my new hobby project, so that I may start coding it tomorrow.)
