Perhaps you want the functions qc-file and qc-file-load. Compiling\n from a buffer rather than the file it came from wouldn't be any faster,
so we don't bother implementing it. You might well want to compile
a buffer that hadn't been written out and make a qfasl file, but then
when you did write it out the source would look newer than the qfasl
and the automatic tools would think the qfasl had to be compiled over again.
The compiler does have a mode where it compiles to both a qfasl file
and to memory. I don't know whether it works; probably it doesn't
since I don't think it's ever been used.
