Yeah, and that means that the work of updating license is unfinished.
Taking into account that *GPL are viral, the overall legal status of
system containing both CCL and SWANK is under question.
Actually, ccl.lisp is only 32kb. I think I could remove it from my
drive. Then take SBCL, CCL, apropos, reimplement ccl.lisp from scratch
in several days and publish it under another license. But anyways it
would be very similar to already existing ccl.lisp and it would look
suspicious. So I'm not sure if this approach is legal.
