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 winter
and
<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 cltl  was / summa theologica / but now outdated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.
