An undergrad here, Ken Keller by name, has decided the world needs a good
portable LISP, probably written in C for use on Unices and other such machines.
I think he's good enough to pull it off. He wants to make the thing look as
much like MACLISP as possible, perhaps even with a compiler someday. It
would have BIBOP and NEWIO. Comments? Are there existing systems around
that he ought to know about, written in C or something else that is suitably
