MAKE-LOAD-FORM can handle circularities [was Compilation implications]

    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?
