Hi, I've finally got around to this, and after some investigation
implemented it using the static constant facility in cmpwt.lsp
instead:

There are two problems with the static constant facility.

1) Not all compilers allow initialization of global constants in a complicated way. MSVC chokes on many of the expressions we produce for lisp constants.

2) Static constants are not allocated in the heap. That is a huge problem I did not realize until recently, because if a constant in a loaded file is still referenced _after_ the binary file is garbage collected and unloaded, then we have a problem. I am looking for a solution, but currently it seems disabling static constants is the only possibility.
