WARNING: If you like haiku, look away now, but I don't want these to be lost for posterity...
So this started with Raymond Toy:
<rtoy> Krystof: Do you remember your haiku for CMUCL? If so, can I use it in my personal CMUCL startup banner?
I'd (on the spur of the moment, a few days ago) come up with a haiku that summarised CMUCL's performance:
<Krystof> cmucl / compiles beauty to fast code / life springs eternal <Krystof> Ah yes, traditional "wise guy" cheat on the season-word 'requirement'On the other hand...
<wnewman> steel bank common lisp / compiles beauty carefully / finished by winterand
<wnewman> openmcl / spring for proprietary hardware / get lisp for free
Dan gets to be a bigger wise guy than me, though, because of these gems:
<dan_b> on axp / sbcl has type issues / is that uint? uh ... <dan_b> cltl was / summa theologica / but now outdated <dan_b> frankly, I'm struggling
Ideas on a postcard for other lisp implementations... we now return you to our regular schedule.
