is it technically an upgrade when no new functionality is added?
i found an xml package that works with openmcl. with that, i rewrote the bottom half of my bookmarks code to parse an xml tree instead of regexp'ing a file. i feel a lot better about it. i plan to clean up some of code that interfaces with paserve so i can have more interesting and consistent html output. maybe a quick template hack?
i find myself using my interface to load even one bookmark instead of using the dropdown bookmarks menu. still quicker for me to type than use the mouse, i guess.
SRFI for lisp?
perhaps this has been discussed to death and i'll get flamed.. but i think there needs to be a mechanism for standardizing (lower case "s") some interfaces (sockets, ffi, regexp). perhaps allegro's sockets and kmr's uffi could be the basis for the first two?
maybe there should also be a mechanism for deprecating parts of the spec? i don't know enough to suggest any. but i'm sure there's some cruft in there somewhere.
