feature request

A useful feature to add to some future release of MACL is incremental
lisp images. 

Here are some reasons:
	o  Floppy disks are limited to 800K/1.4MB, while dumped
	   lisp images are often much larger. Since not every user
	   of a system is likely to have access to appletalk or
	   binary ftp, this leaves no convenient mechanism for
	   distributing images, other than distributing fasl files
	   or using an application like stuffit.
	o  Makes it easier to deal with multi-component systems.
