MCL have a rich library of user contributions/libraries on the CD
distributions that we all could benefit from having updated for
compatibility Clozure CL. I'll port the relevant ones of mine, but
there are many for which the original developer is long gone. Perhaps
this could be an opportunity for say students on summer break to make
a name in the Common LISP developer community, placing literally your
mark on CCL contributions to be used for many years to come without
having to start from scratch?
