I didn't see an answer to this go by, sorry if this is a redundant message.
Yes, MCL 2.0.1 works on a 540c (I use it on a 280c, but I've also tested it
on the 540c).  I haven't used CLIM 1.1 myself, but if it runs under MCL on
some other hardware, it should run on the 540c.  I do use wood on my
duo with no problems.

MCL runs about equivalently on a 540c to a Quadra 950, except for floating
point which is MUCH slower (since the 68LC040 chip has no FPU).
