Yes, but I already have enough problems handling a single branch, and ensuring 
that it is up to date on five different computers.

LOAD, both on windows and on OSX, could only load lisp sources (i.e. S-forms 
that are bytecompiled and executed) and COMPILE could only produce object 
files that can be statically linked to form a new program. With the new 
changes, OSX boxes can now compile lisp files to produce FASL files, i.e. 
machine code files that can be loaded at run time. As a side effect, the 
runtime is also now a shared library.
