The only reason I can think of, is this: when people see obvious
shortcomings, they seem to be more motivated to invent a proper
solution for the problem.

Thinking about it, could we use the temporary filename to patch the
recorded source info?  IIUC, OpenMCL records the source location in
the hashtable %source-files%.  The idea is that
swank:compile-string-for-emacs replaces all entries for the temporary
file with something like (:emacs-buffer <buffer-name>).

Is this approach too naive?
