Not yet. That's on my list. It should be ok, though since gcl uses PCL
for its CLOS, just like cmucl. And I'm not doing anything really fancy
with CLOS. I think gcl doesn't have define-compiler-macro, so those
might have to be removed for gcl. But that's not too important, since
it just expanded out (+ a b c) to multiple calls to two-arg-+.
