Agreed :-).

Ah.  If CCL is also bytecode, I would expect that any performance gains
over Clisp would be sufficiently marginal that Clisp's support of ANSI
makes it the winner, but that's just me.  Of course Clisp is GPL, so if
someone wants to do a closed bytecode based Axiom they would need to
either revive CCL or look elsewhere.  Personally I am fine with Clisp -
if someone wants to go commercial closed source with Axiom they are
allowed to, but we don't have to do all the work to make it easy for
them.  Just MHO.
