from this it looks like the file "mcl-interface.lisp" would be the only one 
needing to be modified once the low level gl interface is in place (courtesy 
of the OpenMCL's interface translator)

the two macros foreign-function and foreign-define, would then need to be 
modified to fit with the openMCL ffi.  im not really sure what to tweak, but 
im looking into the details.. .

from Hamilton's previous mail, the cocoa interface involves using 
NSOpenGLView, spending some time with project and interface builders and the 
cocoa manuals (some opengl refs probably wouldnt hurt either!) .. ..
