Sorry to sound like a whiney user :-)  I had looked at the scl and sbcl 
versions and even tried a first pass at naive cut and paste for support 
but then realized that it would take a bit more "figurin' out how stuff 
works" than I have time for.  This is on my "todo when I get a chance" 
list so you may get some patches from me, although the way things look 
that might be during the next interglacial warming period.

Thanks a bunch!
