1. Make LOAD not bind *POLICY* anymore, so that toplevel OPTIMIZE
declarations in top level DECLAIMs and PROCLAIMS take global
effect under LOAD. Document this, mention in "Idiosycracies".
2. Make such declarations signal style-warnings under LOAD.
3. Make :VERBOSE output include information about loaded policy,
and the policy the file was compiled under.
4. Provide :OPTIMIZE extension for WITH-COMPILATION-UNIT that be used
to introduce a policy for the dynamic contour of the body. :OPTIMIZE
NIL will just rebind the current policy. Default is no :OPTIMIZE
clause at all. Example::
(WITH-COMPILATION-UNIT (:OPTIMIZE ((SPEED 2) (DEBUG 2))) ...)
Objections welcome. If nothing of the caliber of "this will not do"
arises, I'll merge something like the above early next week.
