Tim, did you read what I wrote: core Axiom works with Ansi Lisps.
It took me probably slightly more than two man-weeks and you should
add to that time spent by Jurgen Weiss, Greg Vanuxiem, Gaby and
possibly others.  What I am talking about is "minor extension for
sockets" and file operations.  There were proposals to do this
in pure Lisp.  My conclusion is that the way to go (at least in
short term) is to keep C parts.

Good workman knows which tool to use to solve problem.
