I don't know how viable a suggestion this is, but CLisp has a cute hack
where you can chmod +x a .fasl file and will automagicaly do the right
thing.  I think the way it's done is that .fasl files have #!/bin/clisp
prepended to them, and then the CLisp executable has startup code that
does the Right Thing when passed a .fasl file as a startup argument.

Seems like something like this shouldn't be too hard to do.
