[Openmcl-devel] socket / IPC question

I'd like to build a client/server set up where the client and server 
can be:

() on two different computers
() in two different Lisps on the same computer
() in two different processes in the same Lisp

It seems that using sockets would be the way to go here but my 
knowledge of socket based programming is weak at best. I've looked at 
Sven Van Caekenberghe's remote-repl (which is pretty darn cool) but 
what I don't know how to do is to connect to remote REPL from another 
Lisp (rather than telnet) or from another thread in the same Lisp.

If anyone can point me towards good socket programming references, 
examples of doing what I'd like to do, better ideas, etc... then I'm 
all ears.
