swank-openmcl.lisp was using process-wait for the control thread
when waiting for work to do. i patched it (it's in CVS now) to
use semaphores instead. emacs+slime has been idling on my pbook
for the last hour without 0% cpu and more importantly not spinning
up the fan.
whether process-wait should be pegging the CPU is a different
question. some CPU penalty is probably unavoidable. gary can
answer to that a lot better than i could.
