There seem to be a number of issues regarding compilation units.
There is this proposal and the one to limit the scope of
proclamations.  There may be some interest in providing a license
for block compilation (well, there's INLINE, but (among other things)
it's not refelected in the interpreter semantics).

Can we tie these together somehow rather than have a number of
separate proposals, each using different mechanisms?

BTW, INCLUDE (as in "insert this file here") could be used to make
a file compilation treat several files as a unit.
