Even on 133Mhz MIPS box, Garnet with CMUCL is still fairly slow.  If
you really wanted to beat on ECL, you might be able to get Garnet
working.  I tried once, but it porting looked to be fairly messy.  If
someone exactly point to what in Garnet/CLX is so damned slow, the
solution (w.r.t CLISP enhancements) would likely be doable.
But (optimistically) I wouldn't hope for anything better than borderline
results.  And expect to employ a fast Pentium.

An alternative would be to try using CLISP's FFI with Amulet or Tk.
