[Openmcl-devel] OpenMCL on Intel

Hello List,

This may seem like a daft question, but since OpenMCL runs under both 
Darwin and Linux on PPC, does the eventual addition of an Intel back 
end of some sort mean that OpenMCL will become available for Linux on 
Intel (be it x86 or whatever)?  And would things like FFI, socket, and 
thread APIs remain consistent across supported platforms?

I ask this because the potential of wider hardware support from OpenMCL 
is very appealing to me.  I've been working on code lately that OpenMCL 
seems to execute faster than other free Lisps I have tried.

On a side note, is there implementation documentation on OpenMCL 
outside of the source code itself?
