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?
