When EVAL-WHEN refers to "compile", it means the translation of a source
file into a binary file, rather than the conversion of list structures
into machine language instructions. EVAL-WHEN has to do with the
distinction between doing things in a file, which will later be loaded
into some other Lisp world, and doing things in the current Lisp world.
So I don't think your incrementally compilation technique affects
EVAL-WHEN at all.
I have no opinion on the *EVALHOOK* issue.
