Erik Naggum is interested in porting Emacs to Common Lisp
(starting with ACL) using CLIM. This could be a killer application -
which also could be the user interface central for a LispOS.
His motivation is to get rid of Emacs Lisp and its implementation.
A decent version of Common Lisp would be a better base for an
editor (which might not be big - just look at MCL).
