Not much difference.  ;(

Or add C functions to CLISP -- solely for the sake of Garnet.

Since the simplest activities in Garnet are slow, I blame CLX, and
wonder if making a CLISP-specific CLX module wouldn't go a long way
to making Garnet usable.  Any wisdom out there?

An Amulet module is surely more forward thinking.  But it is so
hard to let go...
