Saving runtime options in CCL:SAVE-APPLICATION

SBCL has an option when you dump an executable image to have the new image start up with the same amount of reserved heap space, stack space, etc, as the current image. Also, using this option means that the all command-line arguments are passed directly to the executable image.
Currently, the CCL kernel handles some command-line arguments unconditionally, which is a nuisance for producing completely stand-alone applications. Having this option would both enable complete control of command-line argument handling, and would let a saved application start up with a specified amount of heap space, stack space, etc, rather than the defaults.
; Currently (ccl:save-application "frob-text"
:prepend-kernel t :toplevel-function #'main)
... $ ./frob-text document.txt Couldn't load lisp heap image from document.txt
; Ideally (ccl:save-application "frob-text"
:prepend-kernel t :toplevel-function #'main :save-runtime-options t)
... $ ./frob-text document.txt <frobs document.txt>
