It bypasses modules and levels by operating with objects rather than
names for objects.  I don't see that as necessarily a Bad Thing.

That is, a compiler that accepts textual input rather than data
structures, CL:FILE-COMPILE rather than CL:COMPILE.  This is why Andy's
earlier post confused me.

In any case, due to the volume and nature of the complaints, I have
withdrawn this ticket.
