Just as a sort of excuse, here is a direct quote from a knowledgeable
person that gave me my impression that OpenMCL would not go to x86:
"Oh, and another good bootstrapping question is "What would be involved
in porting openmcl to another platform?" Meaning another risc
architecture with plenty of general-purpose registers, like to Sun or
SGI boxen? (Porting to x86 or P* probably constitutes yet another
question, and a less welcome one, because register allocation is so
different. The answer to this one, I know: use some other lisp and
write some libraries to ensure you can write to consistent lisp system
It is possible I misread this.
