Well, I'm working at redefining the way the system is built and
I'm not 100% certain of all of the details. I've nearly
finished the CCL lisp system, which will be the first release
platform, and I'll see what kind of reaction that generates.
I should be posting the first draft of the CCL code shortly.
Essentially the goal is transitioning the system build to work
from literate programs. The first draft requires a lot of writing
as there is no other documentation. I'm finding all kinds of interesting
advantages and I've only just begun using it. I've also built
some system tools that, as I got smarter about things, it turned
out I didn't need. Simplify, simplify...

I recommend that you take a look at this literate programming 
stuff. It is a bit tedious to set up but the system should be
much more maintainable in the long term. (Besides, it would
be REAL convenient if you make GCL literate so I don't have to :-) )
