There’s also the issue that Quicklisp doesn’t provide a mechanism for searching or browsing through the available libraries. It helps you load stuff up, along with dependencies. But it doesn’t answer the question, “what cool/useful CCL add-ons have people created”.

It's not a solution in itself because Zach understandably wants to keep Quicklisp implementation-agnostic, but maybe one of us could make a small extension to quicklisp that borrows its facilities to easily find and download CCL contribs.
