      CLIM (and Lisp!) might really catch on if (2) and (3) were easy.
      Along the way we might learn some things about clim.
  I'm sorry if I sound like a broken record.
  The very small number of people implementing CLIM are so busy just
  implementing CLIM that the CLIM demos do not get the attention they
  deserve.  This situation is unlikely to change.

My comment was addressed to CLIM managers and marketeers trying to
find their market.  Your plate is plenty full.

  If anybody wishes to
  write good CLIM demos and donate them to the cause, that would be
  terrific.  I would also like to point out that in some ways it is
  better if someone besides a professional CLIM implementor implements
  some non-trivial demos, because that person is likely to use CLIM in
  different ways than we implementors, which will help to find problems
  in CLIM.

Exactly.  Sometimes a documentation specialist also
implements the demos.  There are similar issues involved.
