There is also a binding from common lisp (cmucl) to gtk, yet another
option for porting over to linux. 

I have not used common music a lot (I tend to just write lisp code, I do
use item streams), but I find the current incarnation more usable than
the older stella. It is closer to being just lisp and I like that. 

>From http://www.cons.org/cmucl/ports.html:

"#  There are two CMUCL bindings to the GTk+ widget set. Espen Johnsen's
clg binds directly to the GTk event loop via the CMUCL FFI (GNU LGPL). 
Gilbert Baumann's (older) binding uses a client-server model to avoid
problems with mixing two event loops."

What is that?

I tried Googling for "spare time" and I could not find anything really
relevant (things like "how to own the internet in your spare time" or
"let your pc find aliens in its spare time" - it would seem the
expression is somehow related to pcs and the internet :-)
