Lack of ANSI compatibility is a killer, IMHO.  Any sense of how far
from ANSI it is?  CMUCL and SBCL are both very liberal about licensing
IIRC, so they can serve as a deployment platform for that type of
thing.  Also, if someone wants to go closed source they are probably
well advised to take a look at Allegro.

I think the main issue there is the performance of Clisp, which IIRC is
quite slow compared to CMUCL et. al.
