Yes, but if I cut and paste the text of the code that I am describing
may change out from under my text.  If I import the code, it stays in
sync (at least when the document is exported).

Honestly, I was tempted to do the literate programming thing with babel,
but was concerned that it might not work well as a multiple-author thing
(I would be writing the document, but someone else might be modifying
the code and might find org-babel confusing).

Yes, I was talking about #+INCLUDE.  I was really wondering if there
mightn't be something like

#+INCLUDE ~/myfile.lisp :from "(defun sample-function" :to "; end

[sorry --- that's word-wrapped to further obscurity.]
