I've seen the announcements, but have never seen what it can do.  How
does it compare to CLIM in terms of functionality?

I've heard that the Mac port was indefinitely postponed due to lack of
Mac-knowledgeable personnel.  What's the current state of this effort?
Can you say anything about when you anticipate it being available?  If

I'd love to see GARNET ported to MCL so we could have a portable GUI to
compete with (the relatively inexpensive but still proprietary) CLIM.
This is something for us MCL'ers to consider seriously, especially in
