or instead:
   ../Library/Application Support/OpenMCL/init.lisp.

regardless, i think that makes more sense for a mac os x app bundle
and not the darwin or linux ppc versions.  granted the majority (if
not all) of darwin users are running mac os x.

i don't think i was clear, we would specify a file, .openmcl/init.lisp,
and that in turn could load as many files as it wants in that (or other)
directories.  i just like the idea of it being in a separate directory 
encourage that behavior.

i won't rest until i am able to clean up everybody's home dir.  ;)
