yes, sbcl certainly seems to be in an "in between" state right now as 
they (apparently) add in callback and threading support.  cmucl 19b 
will be fine except that i dont know how useful the "realtime" stuff 
will be there: cmucl only has lisp threads so the rts scheduler will 
use a 1ms periodic task and will have to share the slice with 
receiving. it might work ok for small amounts of data.

clisp and acl seem be what people use on windows. the LispWorks 
"personal edition" does have native threads and I ported cm to it 
sevearl months ago but I dont think anyone is using it.
