It turns out that it doesn't work: byte-compile-dynamic doesn't work
for preloaded files (because the external reference to the code
is read in as 0 (assuming that it is a docstring reference and
will be filled in by Snarf-documentation).
The problem is "fixed" by the patch below, but it's not
a satisfactory fix (it increases the amount of pure storage used)
and I have no idea how to really fix things.
