In another message, I pointed to Alan Ruttenburg's code inthe MCL contrib
directory, also on the MCL CD.  On the CD, it's in User Contributed
Code:Collected works:Alanr's Contribution:Sheet:Substrate:shaped-view.lisp.

It defines views with specified shapes.  It also defines a view whose shape
is the union of the shapes of its subviews.  You can get non-rectangular
windows, with disjoint parts, even.  It's very nice and very easy to use.
