re: It would be rather awful if the use of documented and supposedly portable
features of CLIM resulted in applications effectively only being portable
to a limited set of implementations which happen to provide a particular
Isn't it the case that CLIM applications will likely only "port" to those
implementations that are party to the CLIM consortium?
That's not the intent. Rich Acuff's attempt to port CLIM to the
Explorer should provide an interesting test of the theory.
I know that this

It is certainly our expectation that CLIM will work well on MCL 2.0.
The Mac has been one of the important target platforms for CLIM from the
