Re: suitability of CLOS for large KB

My experience has been that nothing is well suited to very large
knowledge bases.  For merely large knowledge bases, such as somewhat
larger than what fits into the paging space allocated to Lisp, you
might be able to use CLOS and include a subsystem for moving data
back and forth to disk.  However, the few PCL implementations I
have used are all rather slow, so if speed is a concern then PCL
may not be a good choice.
