RE: The cost of CLIM and its future

    At such time as CLIM is available in a portable form on Franz, Lucid, MCL,
    Allegro/PC, CLOE, --->>> AND CMU-CL <<<--- , my management will switch to it

What I want to know is, why does your management expect far more of Lisp
plus CLIM than it does of any C plus whatever-the-prevailing-UI-system-is-
for-one-platform?  Why is CLIM expected, right now, to be 100% portable to
every Lisp implementation and every platform in the known universe, when
UI tools for C are not really portable at all?
