This is great

Finally, a reference for a complete lisp implementation all in one place (other than the source code, which has already been around for a while). It's nice to read all the papers that are floating around the 'net, but to have all this information about a real system all in one place is a godsend.

Thanks for this. It will benefit all greatly in the future.
