	   2) Use the CLX back-end of CLIM instead of the Genera back-end:
	      (open-root-window :clx :host "sgi-name")

       Can this be used to open a clim window in MacX?  What I'd like to
       do is have several native macintoshes running MacX and displaying
       clim windows for a symbolics 3650.

    This should work, although I have never tried it.  Does the standard
    Genera release of CLIM still include the CLX back-end?  Is it loaded
    automatically, or is it optional?

I have not tried it with MacX, but Genera CLIM works fine with
UNIX-based X servers.  The only trick is that you have to load the CLX
system *before* you load CLIM; part of the CLIM sysdcl (naturally) has
#+CLX for the modules that implement the CLX back-end.
