I would be interested in any well written library that increases the  
capabilities of common lisp across implementations. Franz's  
environment access appears to be such a library. In addition, a port  
to ccl would bring pressure on other implementors to integrate it with  
their implementations as it would progressively assume de-facto  
standard status, much as cl-ppcre, or asdf have.

Of course, as Duane has said, "porting is not completely trival," so  
it would fall to someone with much more knowledge of ccl internals  
(e.g., Gary) to weigh in on how much work it would be to integrate  
this with ccl.
