I think most novice users will be pulling things in from a package manager if they are able to on their distro.

If the distro doesn't have a quicklisp package, it would make sense to create one and have it pulled in automatically. After all, quicklisp *is* a dependency. It makes sense to use a system designed to handle that (package manager) to deal with it.

May I ask a simple question?

Can't we build QuickLisp into the StumpWM binary for novice users?
