Why not have the data in file with just alists, and read it into a scratch
package with some readtable hackery to 1) guard against #. 2) preserve
package hygiene. (See main.lisp in linedit sources for one example of how
to do this.) Then just:
(apply #'make-project :label label (apply #'append alist))?
Then the profile.sexp (or whatever) would look like:
;;;; Use this file to alter how your project appears on the
;;;; common-lisp.net website.
;;;; The contents should be a single alist, with elements of the form
;;;; (<keyword> <value>)
;;;; The values will appear on the pages are processed by PRINC.
;;;; Unknown keywords are ignored, so feel free to use them.
;;;; Known keywords are:
;;;; :name, :category, :description, :license
;;;; The reading of this is done with some readtable hackery:
;;;; #.foo => foo
;;;; foo:bar => foo :bar
;;;; foo::bar => foo :bar
(:description "A Common Lisp interface to the PostgreSQL database"))
As you see I omitted the label form the stuff user-definable things: we
know that when we read the file anyways.
