Well, amusingly enough, I tried it in cl-web and the code seems to
already exhibits the behavior above ;-).  So if anyone wants to do that
they can.

I think I understand better now what you were saying - as opposed to
breaking a chunk definition down into sub chunks which are included in a
toplevel chunk, you simply have a single chunk with its definition
spread through the file, with the scan identifying where the pieces are
and putting them together.
