The broader question is whether CCL has any more competitive edge (and
therefore a reason to exist beyond nostalgia). 15 years ago when I
started using Common Lisp, CCL's compiler was roughly 5x faster than
SBCL (which is why I used it as my main development env on Linux), it
was well maintained and the integration with Cocoa was very important
for many OSX users. Now pretty much all that is gone.
