As Gaby has pointed out, one could take an entirely different
point of view. There is no reason to so strongly associated
Axiom with Lisp. In fact Axiom only uses a small part of the
Lisp runtime environment. So it might be possible to take CCL
as the basis for an Axiom-specific runtime optimized especially
to efficiently support Axiom. From this point of view ANSI
compatibility is completely irrelevant.
