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?
