I'm not sure that I understand the question, but you can do:

? (ccl::ppc-xdisassemble #'cdr :for-lap t)
       (TWNEI NARGS 4)
       (MFLR LOC-PC)
       (VPUSH ARG_Z)
       (LWZ ARG_Z 0 VSP)
       (CLRLWI IMM0 ARG_Z 30)
       (TWNEI IMM0 1)
       (LWZ ARG_Z -1 ARG_Z)
       (BA .SPPOPJ))))

That pretty-prints a form and returns (VALUES); it might be better if
it returned the form.  If you mouse on that "NFUNCTION" form and
execute it, it'll create a function (a "named function", in fact).

Is that the sort of thing that you meant ?
