But.. there is incremental compilation (!)

For example, (movitz-compile-file "losp/tmp/harddisk.lisp") should do
the right thing wrt. *image*, and this takes maybe one second on my

What movitz-mode.el does is e.g. upon M-C-x, to extract a top-level
form into a temporary file and applying movitz-compile-file to
it. Something similar should come into existence for Slime, but until
then, at least one can use movitz-compile-file manually.
