This is one of the things that I think would be very important for
everyone involved with Lisp and this project. Actually after there
was a free CLIM we would already have taken a major step toward a
lispOS as far as the user is concerned. For instance all of the talk
about making a lisp shell would then be rendered moot for all intents
and purposes, just use a dynamic listener. There have been a few
people mentioning that they are implementing their own version of
CLIM what is the status of these projects? Has someone finished a
Silica clone? Started one?
