The <MACLISP> directory is essentially frozen on CMUC.  The directory here is
only touched by Scott Fahlman and myself; other persons are only allowed to
touch it with the explicit permission of either Scott or I.  This state of
affairs became necessary after a number of situations where importing new
versions of packages from MIT caused our system to break.  At this point in
time, all our efforts are directed towards bringing Spice Lisp and Common Lisp
up, and we view it as safer to live with the known problems in our current
MacLisp than to expend the effort to remain current.  We are using MacLisp very
heavily as a tool in these other efforts, and having a stable system is
absolutely essential.
