    Dennis Doughty is correct that IBUKI was offered the deal he outlined and
    that we declined.  For us one problem was NOT the CL spec, but rather that
    CLIM was only really being supported for lisps which had internal
    multi tasking.  I.E. it is NOT a Common Lisp program. (there was a pure
    lisp version but we felt at the time it would not be maintained by ILA.)

MCL and CLOE, neither of which support multi-tasking, both support
CLIM.  (I'm not saying this to publicly contradict you, I just don't
want others to think that multi-tasking is a pre-requisite for CLIM.)

    I sent this message because I wanted everyone to know that ILA indeed
    offered (at the dawn of time) everyone that asked the same deal.  In
    addition to the technical problem stated above, IBUKI did not see itself
    in the UI business.  We will be happy to talk to anyone who wants to 
    develope CLIM for IBCL about reselling it.
