The ability to say
(COMPILE-FILE "foo.lisp" :APPEND "foo.bin")
can be generalized to allow access to the streams used by compile-file.
Thus I would be able to "compile-file to a stream", then "load from
the stream". Is there anything in Cltl that implies that one cannot
perform incremental updates to a FASL file or manipulating FASL
structures as streams?
Certainly there are file structures that would allow this kind of
update are well known. Most binary file libraries allow this kind
