The speed issue is not much of a direct concern for me.  Note that for
some applications Clisp is actually faster than SBCL, but this is
limmited to that class of programs which do on the fly compilation as
their main computation.  Clisp has an simple, non-optimizing,
blindingly-fast bytecode compiler.
