OK, it took a while but it's working: a mail system
written in lisp using persistent objects. As I said I would.
Let's give it another shot.
I'm now calling it NICLOS, the language NICL,
Next Implementation of Common Lisp.

Actually, I figure to at least discuss my OODB implementation on
the niclos mailing list. 1) how to release the implementation
to the community and 2) I could use some input on many aspects
of the design and implementation. In particular, here's a
problem/issue I'm now wrestling with:
How can a class be both persistent and non-persistent?
A persistent class is redefined, instances get updated, but then the
transaction is aborted -- the persistent instances go back to
their previous state, but the class definition in memory doesn't?
