I'll see what I can so. For some time I've been meaning to
write up something related to this, a "-script" hack that
works with a standard distribution core file [the hack is
implemented in the "site-init" file], that's used this way
[it also allows FASLs]:

    $ cat demo
    #!/usr/local/bin/cmucl -script
    (format t "~s run with ~a args:~%" *script-name* (length *script-args*))
    (loop for i from 0 and arg in *script-args* do
      (format t "arg[~a]: ~s~%" i arg))

    $ demo foo 'bar baz' gorp
    "demo" run with 3 args:
    arg[0]: "foo"
    arg[1]: "bar baz"
    arg[2]: "gorp"

It's what I use for all my miscellaneous "scripting" these days...
