My opinion is that `queens' is not a module in the sense of CLISP,
because it requires you to modify subr.d and constsym.d so you must
recompile everything. It does not use the modules.[dh] feature. You
can't add queens to an existing lisp.a.

Extend.txt tells how to add files (non-modules) like `queens' to CLISP
(recompiling everything), modules.txt tells the user how to add
dynamic modules to a given lisp.a (UNIX only) but neither explain how
to create an own module from scratch. Src/stdwin.d and
src/foreign1.lsp seem to be the only places where to gather
information about the structure of a module.
Maybe what's missing is queensmod, `queens' as a CLISP module, adding
a few #ifdef QUEENS_AS_MODULE to callqueens.d. I can do that. But
then there's still documentation missing.
