If someone starts working on a Tk toolkit for clisp, please keep in
mind that Thorsten Schnier has ported GCl's Tk binding to CMUCL (to be
found at http://www.arch.usyd.edu.au/~thorsten/lisp/lisp.html). A note
to cmucl-imp@cons.org would be appreciated, too. I don't know how
cooperative the GCL folks are.

It probably a good thing to coordinate the efforts. I don't want to
end up with three different Tk bindings :-)
Happy Lisping
