It that logical? StumpWM was running on Common Lisp, now it is running
on one implementation, specifically. Does it deviate from standard or
what is the technical reason behind it, that I may understand?

That is Lisp, not just Window Manager, and also that statement is not
logical, especially to StumpWM, the programmable window manager.
The reason why GCL and CLISP use readline is due to their licensing,
they are compatible with the readline library. SBCL cannot implement
the readline due to licensing issues, and so many other
Somebody writing about that, should always know about Emacs and SLIME,
and I am certainly using it, however your impression of how Lisp
should be used does not make REPL un-usable, quite contrary,
especially with the readline and completion built-in REPL in CLISP is
increasing productivity, as one cannot do everything with Emacs.
