Hmmm. Hasn't been my experience. You are right about clisp though.
It's dog slow. I like that it runs everywhere but that's about its
only saving grace as far as I'm concerned. I have several programs
written in both Java and Lisp and clisp always ends up being slower
than the equivalent Java version while the other lisp runtimes end up
being faster.
