CLIM 1.1: open-root-window

    [CLIM 1.1 Questions]

    1) What is the reason that the window system type (:clx, :mcl, :sheet...)  has
    to be passed to clim:open-root-window? The respective CLIM-implementation the
    application is running in is platform-specific, so that the window system is
    determined by CLIM (I can't open a :mcl root window while running Franz'
    CLIM with X...). The argument seems to be redundant in my eyes. In CLX,
    open-root-window should take the shell's DISPLAY environment variable as a
    default for the :host argument.

It is possible to run X Windows under Genera...

    2) I can't find a way to interrupt an evaluation running in a CLIM pane [on
    Allegro/SPARC w/ CLIM 1.1] -- C-z or C-c in the pane has no effect until CLIM
    does an explicit read-gesture. In the CLIM Lisp Listener Demo, an infinite loop
    can't be interrupted in the pane. Why? In my eyes, this is a severe problem of
    CLIM -- is it an Allegro specific (Scott McKay has mentioned that it works on
    Genera)? Of course I can interrupt the lisp interpreter, but this is no

I don't know, sorry.
