Collecting proposals for packages, readtables, etc.

    I simply want to be able to set the
    readtable (and package) with which a *source* file will be *read* by

Pending a resolution of these heavy issues, I would say that in a Lisp
where Compile-File and/or Load uses the current package and readtable,
there's no problem in rebinding this before doing the call.  Any Lisp in
which Compile-File and/or Load insist on binding the package to some
particular value should allow this to be over-ridden, presumably by a
:package keyword argument.  Moon says that Symbolics has this already.
