I've not been doing much with OpenMCL lately but that's about to
change: I've finished the actual writing part of my book and am now
packaging up the example code to put on the web. I'm going to be
creating a Lisp in a Box distro for the book and had been planning to
include an OpenMCL version for OS X. So if you guys tie up the loose
ends in the next couple weeks and put out a release, that'd certainly
be excellent timing from my point of view.
