Inline assembler is usually just pasted verbatim by the C compiler into
the assembled output, but Lisp if Lisp is interpreted, the best thing I
can imagine would be the automatic the automatic generation and loading
of dynamic modules, which considering the call overhead involved would
rarely be worthwhile for just a "snippet".
