Hi Gaby,

I don't know about the first 2/3rd of the email, but the
*current-process* is a thread-local variable that points to the
current thread.  The non-external variable (or constant?)
*initial-process* should be the process that CCL uses to start the
listener.  It also happens to be the same as the last item in the list
returned from (ccl:all-processes).
