    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 
    isn't a "closed" consortium; but not even every vendor with a Symbolics-
    inspired multi-tasking design belongs to it.  Someone can correct me if 
    they really think that CLIM is likely to be working freely and well on, 
    say, MACL 2.0 (the Apple Common Lisp).
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
