1 I'm going to have to agree with Chris on this one: Few here would use any
layered product other than CLIM: Concordia isn't TeX, and most stuff being
written here are papers, not documentation. And Statice doesn't solve the
database problems we need solved (neither does anyone else's DB). While I
agree that the idea of having a STANDARD OODBMS that one could have in one's
development system and rely on being around for delivered products has some
attraction, I don't think CL should tackle this, and I don't really think
Statice is general enough. I'm not even sure this problem can be solved
generally enough to satisfy everyone!
Really? I think that "what the Lisp community really needs" is a widely
available (i.e. on many different hardware platforms) "persistent CLOS"
implementation. I agree that this may not satisfy "everyone", but I
think it would fill a very great need.
