[Openmcl-devel] Documentation and Arglist

I am using ILISP with OpenMCL and I think it is a great combination. 
HyperSpec lookup works really well, especially when you need a good 
reference explanation. However, most of the time argument list 
information and/or documentation from the inferior lisp would be enough 
as well as faster and more conveniant. I know which variables to set to 
preserve the argument lists and documentation strings of my code. What 
I am looking for is a lisp image in which the argument list information 
and the documentation for all standard common lisp symbols and some of 
the important ccl symbols are present (for development I wouldn't mind 
a slightly larger image). Is there a way to create such an image ?

Instead of rebuilding an image, there maybe could exist a file that you 
can load that recreates the necessary datastructures to make this 
information available.

I know that in MCL there is a file called MCL Help (Map) that does 
contains most of the info needed. Was that file (and its contents) part 
of the deal when OpenMCL became open source ? What I mean is, could we 
take that info and use it ?
