    I'm not sure what you mean.  If I have a rule like this:
    (defrule rule-1
      (if <conditions>
          then <Lisp code>))
    then I can handle it as above.

Right.  After all, if you want to lose the interpretter/search engine's
overhead, you certainly want to lose EVAL's overhead, and run compiled!
