[Openmcl-devel] saving data to a fasl file

And let's not forget that the easiest way to put something in a fasl 
file is to compile-file a lisp file with forms in it that evaluate to 
what you want to save (although that means selecting variables you want 
to setf to those values when the fasl is loaded back in).

I had to store some data in a reloadable format for a project (I wanted 
to save some big honkin' data structures into fasl files), and I found 
this approach to be the most straightforward. It has the added benefit 
of being portable.
