I haven't thought this through, but I wonder if creating a new
tensely-compiling meta-class is really the right move.  What seems
better to me is a declaration of some sort that tells the compiler, "I'm
finihsed with changes now, the program is finished, now compile it for
maximum performance."  I'd rather not have to go through the code and
change all my defclasses.  And I bet that a lot of users would like to
be able to do this without having to know anything at all about
metaclass hackery.  (Of course, if what they need to do can be boiled
down into some very simple, universally applicable formula, then it's
not a problem -- the still don't need to understand metaclasses, even
though they might have to youch them with the proverbial ten-foot pole.)
