  I believe Richard has chosen Linux and CMUCL. (Linux or FreeDSB
shouldn't make much difference, at least in the early stages.) I'm
using ACL under Linux for my initial developement work on CLIM. (CMUCL
doesn't have CLOS based streams yet. One of the guys on the cmucl-imp
team is working on that.)

  Lots and lots of stuff should be generic Common Lisp so it should
run on any CL platform.
