:-) In a somewhat similar vein, sbcl offers a utility that allows one
to make a fasl file "executable", again by prepending some shell
script magic to the fasl, and ignoring the fact that it looks like
something that was hastily cobbled together.  This can be moderately
useful because loading the concatenation of several fasl files is
equivalent to loading the individual ones in sequence.

sbcl/contrib/sb-executable/ in SBCL's cvs, if anyone's interested.
