RE: Incremental LISP saves

Let me add another reason for incremental lisp images: storage of objects
(either flavors or the CL objects). We are attempting to be able to allow
a saving of state between executions of our program, where the state
is recorded in objects. We have hacked up some simple routines which 
write LISP source code to TEXT files, but that seems to be a bit 
inefficient, and, given the number of inter-object links, can take 
awhile (we have seen 5Mbyte files of source code for a single state
