I'm using buildapp.

Yes, I'm working on that now, with watchfiles and all the jazz. It might
require some help from quicklisp to have proper url to watch for.

No. Working with a team though.
I didn't find a way to create the packaging from Quicklisp
automatically, but working on an auto-update quicklisp based facility
looks easy enough.
So we're not talking about thousand packages.

That's obviously what I did?;-)
So the packaging now works well enough to be able to build the pgloader
packages from only debian provided lisp sources.
