Another *features* issue:

Clozure CL has :MCL on the feature list. I find that I need to edit  
all kinds
of files because the #+mcl code does not run in Clozure CL
(lacks FRED, lacks the GUI, has different pathnames, etc.).

In those places I have to change #+MCL into
#+(and mcl (not clozure-common lisp))

and additionally I then need to add code with


Maybe it needs some shorter feature like :cl-cl or :clcl ?
Would it be :clozure? But that might conflict with code
that is only running within projects of the company Clozure ?

Should :mcl really be on the feature list?
