Here is my suggestion - I don't know how to accomplish this without
user support, i.e. automatically.

(let ((si::*disable-recompile* t))
(si::do-recompile "new_file.lsp")
(load "new_file.o");optional


Separately, with the gcl of the moment, I am not getting the unused
variable warnings in nqthm.

Separately, have you had a chance to look at the ret mismatch warnings
in nqthm?  Is gcl making the right corrections, is it weak, or is it
plain incorrect?  This is with the default source, with nqthm
asserting its own procls too.

Take care,
