	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?

You know, this really gave me some insight into what it must be like to
be a woman in business or science, or a member of an ethnic minority in
any field.  When you're one of the underclass, you have to do better
than everyone else just to be given any consideration at all.  And even
then, you may not get any consideration anyway.
