I wouldn't want this.  It's common in Gambit for LOAD to be ambiguous,
i.e. if you want your module to be compiled, you compile it; if you
want it to be interpreted, you don't compile it.  I switch between
interpreted/compiled a good bit for individual modules for debugging,
interactivity, quick development, etc.

If Gambit ever adopts a module system, we may have enough information
to rationalize about the modules, and this may be possible.
