I haven't learned how to grok the debugger messages yet.  The debugger 
scares me.  Mainly I just abort and try to see what I did wrong.  Just 
yesterday I was getting kicked into the debugger trying some simple 
CLOS stuff not related to non-ANSI coding.  Who knew character was 
already a defined symbol?  Heh.

How well are things handled by OpenMCL when an FFI call is not done 
quite right?  Or if that is the wrong question, what are you doing to 
get kicked into the kernel debugger?  Is that different from a regular 
backtrace because compile-file didn't like something?
