compile-file's implementation-dependent consequences

CLTL2, page 678:

X3J13 voted in June 1989 <137> to clarify that supplying a wild pathname
as the input-pathname argument to compile-file has
implementation-dependent consequences; compile-file might signal an
error, for example, or might compile all files that match the wild

It would be nice if MCL supported the second choice.  Something like:

(defun new-compile-file (name)
  (loop for one-file in (directory name) do 
        (compile-file one-file)))
