The common approach is to run it at a REPL inside screen or  
detachtty. You then have a normal Lisp session that persists when you  
logout. All of your normal development practices apply.

I've had success running it behind pound (so you don't have to run as  
root), using thttpd to serve up static content. I never stop my  
servers, so all you'd need would be a mommy to start up again.
