Clozure has just announced a Rosette port of MCL on Intel! We have
another possible model for a CCL IDE:
Terje Norderhaug has done some interesting preliminary work using MCL
as a generic Lisp IDE. MCL handles events and displays tools while a
separate Lisp process runs the code. It uses the Slime/Swank protocol.
Now I would prefer a version of CCL doing the same thing, but if
Terje's code is in good shape, we can do a proof of concept right now.
