That's interesting, but I was thinking more of a runtime thing. E.g., 
load a bunch of compiled libraries, the Gambit run-time system (of 
course), the files (either compiled or interpreted) specific to my 
project, with a call to (main), and then have

(object->u8vector main)

output all the current globals, etc., that can be called by running 
main, so that calling u8vector->object would give you a runnable object 
with minimal overhead.

Perhaps it's impossible, now that I think about it.
