Running CLIM on CLIO's Open Look widgets (was: Garnet's Motif)

My own personal interest is in writing a CLIM program on a Symbolics
Lisp Machine that projects--onto a dumb X graphics server, such as an X
terminal--a user interface with a Motif look and feel. (Symbolics CLIM
currently projects a Symbolics Genera look and feel, using CLX
directly.) Symbolics Genera already includes CLX, and I am presuming
that porting Garnet to Symbolics would not be too difficult. Thus, what
I would need is a connection between CLIM and Garnet.
But if your goal is a Motif L&F for a CLIM application, I vaguely remember
someone saying that they were developing a CLM driver for CLIM. The main
problem with this is that CLM requires an intermediary Unix system to
perform the Lisp/Motif translation.
Yes, an intermediary UNIX System is unacceptable for my application.
I have just read, though, that CLIO--built at TI on top of CLUE and
included in the CLUE distribution--offers widgets with an Open Look L&F.
Open Look would probably be almost as acceptable as Motif for my
purposes. So...has anyone considered developing a CLIO driver for CLIM?
