1) i've run into a limit on the number of objects (not the size),
   openmcl's fasl tabels have a limit of, afaicr, (expt 2 16). i sent
   a message to the list regarding this a few months ago.

2) the form must be:

(setf var '#.(form))

the quote is essential (and openmcl's error message if you get this
wrong is very cryptic).

Ring the bells that still can ring.
Forget your perfect offering.
There is a crack in everything.
That's how the light gets in.
