I don't understand how CLIM will really help with portability in the larger
sense. Isn't CLIM a standard adopted for Lisp only (Common Lisp Interface
Manager)? Meanwhile, looming larger is X-windows and its derivatives. So, if we
had to implement one or the other, wouldn't we opt for X-windows? (Please
understand that I am not a fan of either CLIM nor X-windows.)
