And if I just want one itty bitty thing in mine, I have to go and
create a whole bling bling directory to put one file in it?
In the latter case I am free, am I not, to have
$HOME/.openmcl-init.lisp read/load files from $HOME/.openmcl-init/....
(or whatever directory I want)?
It seems that in the simple case there the clutter in my home directory
is the same, either a file or a directory.
Personally, so long as it works, I'll adapt. Personally, I wouldn't
clutter my home dir with auxillary files. I just fail to see either
choice as compelling, so I would opt for simplicity....
I'd also like to second Cyrus' earlier note, wondering what we in the
gallery du peanut can do to prep. for a new release. Sadly my
development environment is hosed, or I could try doing builds... (I
might fix it, but then even I wouldn't hold my breath. ;-) ).
