       The dumper should be allowed to compile the forms returned by
       MAKE-LOAD-FORM.  That would be a way of trading increased dumping time
       for decreased loading time.  If the file is to be loaded many times
       that would be a desirable trade-off.  Also, it is then possible to
       load it into a Lisp that has no EVAL.

   I agree.  Didn't the version 1 writeup say that?

Maybe it did.  Some CL mail has gotten lost on its way here, due to
lossage at SAIL.  Or I might have just overlooked it.
