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.
