Hrvoje, please let's not get entrenched in stale positions here; we
have plenty of time to discuss this. The strategy Steve has referred
to implies to commitment to a particular language/implementation for a
long time to come.
One big problem with CL is that noone on the XEmacs team has stepped
forward and written up an argument for it. (Another issue is that I
don't understand your aversion against Scheme at all. I wish you'd
elaborate.) We *need* more discussion on this.
I've asked on several occasions for write-ups, but so far got only
references to Erik Naggum's postings elsewhere. If we want to
implement a technology, but have nobody who's going to stand up for
it, the whole argument for it becomes rather moot. It's highly
unlikely Erik's going to jump on our bandwagon and do all the work.
Besides, I, for one, will quit XEmacs development on the day this
