Yes. That would be perfect. I believe also LWW may work.
Any idea about how to fix the CLisp problem? Also, anybody knows
whether it would work in MCL?
An alternative could be to just dump a script and sort of a tar file
and have a way to load the result. Maybe asking LOAD to take care of
it is a little too much. BTW. I am just thinking out loud.
But please, do not put anything in the CVS repository until a
satisfactory and portable solution has been found.

Like DNA, such a language [Lisp] does not go out of style.
