i recall that removing :mcl was the consensus when it was
discussed a few years back.

perhaps now with the name change to clozure cl, it'll be
easier to cause more drastic breakage by removing both
:mcl and :openmcl.  maybe with a -legacy mode that pushes
one or both back onto *features*.  this would probably
best be timed with all the other renaming that remains
(shell scripts, web sites, docs, etc.).

basically i'm thinking that instead of removing all the
#+(and mcl (not openmcl)) cruft in third-party code, it'd
be left in for people running older pre-clozure cl lisps
and there would be another form added with #+clozurecl
(or #+clcl or ...)


ps.  i like the look of #+clcl.
