Have we identified a free, Maxima-compatible Lisp that is portable across
Windows/Linux/Mac and has reasonable performance? It would be really nice
if it supported CFFI, obviously....
I recall that ECL was proposed at one point, but if I remember correctly, it
had a fatal flaw in its handling of stack overflow, which its developers
didn't seem to intend to fix. Has that changed?
SBCL is still characterized as 'experimental' on Windows.
Clojure, anyone? (But it is a Lisp 1...)
