[Openmcl-devel] Using screen to put CCL/HT in production as a web server

I'm about to put a CCL web app (using Hunchentoot) into production.  Up to now I've been taking advantage of all the interactive goodness that the IDE offers, but of course that will mostly go away once the app is deployed.  But it occurred to me that I could use the "screen" program to keep a REPL around for debugging the live app.  My question is: is this a wise thing to do?  Are there potential unexpected negative consequences of deploying an application this way?  Security holes?  Possible crashes?  Has anyone tried this?  This is one set of lessons I'd rather not learn the hard way.
