Saving Lisp applications as SBCL images

Nice article on saving and distributing Lisp applications from SBCL:

Freezing Lisp in Time | Mikael Jansson
So, when you're done with the heavy processing and finally want to distribute your work as an application, or maybe resume work later after that RAM upgrade, here's how!

Looks nice and simple. However the image is large! Hopefully someone will chip in with a way of improving this.

Alas, not with SBCL, it seems: http://groups.google.com/group/comp.lang.lisp/browse_thread/thread/4ce9bc3b8366c8f1/f371634d27e38830#f371634d27e38830

I guess you could switch over to LispWorks if you need proper application packaging, however I agree it's lacking for the smaller public-domain apps. :/
