How does this fit together with natively-compiled implementations like gcl?
It is perfectly compatible.
Does this imply radically changing them to work more like an
load natively-compiled versions as shared libraries like what was done to GCJ?
If it does, who is going to do the work? And is this really a good
what it's worth, Maxima seems to cope just fine with the current
Sure, Maxima doesn't depend on pre-installed libraries of lisp code.
What's at issue is:
- Where to the library sources get installed?
- Where do the implementation dependent fasl and/or other binary files
- How do we manage fasl updates when a lisp implementation changes?
- How do they all hook into asdf or similar
- How do we scale to include the hundreds of Common Lisp libraries
that gentoo and others package?
- etc etc etc
