The advantages this has over TCL/TK are that it is apparently
implimented in lisp itself, if I understand what it is correctly.  I
found it when I was investigating options for a Maxima gui.  It looks
to be too much work to be worthwhile, particularly since it doesn't
currently run on Windows.  I was curious if anyone here knew more about
it, but I concur it appears mostly dead.  I doubt I'll be able to try
building it anytime soon.
