The Quicklisp library bundle feature has been around for a while. It creates a "bundle" of libraries from Quicklisp that can be used standalone, without loading or using Quicklisp at all.
Today, I published an updated client with a new bundle feature: if :include-local-projects is true, everything in Quicklisp's ql:*local-project-directories* is copied into the bundle and made available when the bundle is loaded.
To get this update, use (ql:update-client). The new code will be loaded when Lisp is restarted.
This work was commissioned by Rigetti Computing.
