Description (last modified by ehuelsmann)

It's possible to define classes at runtime, by generating bytecode and loading it from the generated binary data, without ever writing it to a temporary file. runtime-class.lisp does that, but it requires an external bytecode library (ASM). ABCL has all the functionality for this to be done without ASM, so the task is to modify the runtime-class.lisp code so that ASM is no longer required and the code can be taken to be part of the build.

Milestone: too-vague

We currently not-write to temporary files for any COMPILEd functions (ie this does not apply to COMPILE-FILE compiled functions - yet). So, the real requirement here is too vague.

Do we need this for other purposes?
