LOOP is autoloaded (not built into the image, but loaded the first
time that it's used.)

For a long time, binary releases didn't include the FASL file - I
couldn't quite get my mind around the idea of people actually downloading
just the binary without recompiling everything from source for themselves.

(I confess that I still find the idea a little strange, but I've tried
to remember to include FASLs for loop and step and eval for the last
several releases.  And yes, I agree that it makes little sense to
worry about autoloading a few hundred Kb of code ...)
