You don't need "one big application" per se: One of the useful
features of Common Lisp is that you can compile & load code into
a running program, so you can continue to write separate "web pages"
of code, and have them auto-loaded [and auto-recompiled if they
change!] into the Lisp application server "on demand" [with "JIT"
compilation]. My own LHP (Lisp-Handled Pages) infrastructure does it
that way. Here are a couple of simple examples:

Many other people have done similar things, I sure...
