Just making sure credit goes where it’s due:  Stefan did great work on the key 
piece, processing the Lisp environment for dumping as Lisp.  I’ve tried to 
improve the Lisp reader performance a bit, and fix up a couple minor bugs here 
and there, and maybe put a little polish on it.

Despite a few little speed-ups, I’ve got my doubts as to whether it’s going to 
be fast enough.  The .elc files are still (essentially) Lisp, and parsing text 
is not the most efficient way to load a bunch of object definitions.
