thanks for the answer -- another question:

are there any docs on the weak hash-table support?  why is it only
available for eq hash-tables?  i'm trying to make an object cache
which is indexed by OIDs (integers), and let the gc decide what to gc.

are there weak pointers and finalization?  i've been having trouble
finding docs.  on cmucl i can do this by making a hash-table which
stores weak pointers to the objects, which have finalizers on them
which remove the hash-table entry.

thanks and take care, Ben Lee
