I think that's the approach the Gentoo packager is taking, but without 
documentation, I have know way of knowing what he is doing or why. :) 
Since I've got the attention of CM/CLM/CMN users, what are the tradeoffs 
between having them individually packaged and packaged as a bundle as 
described in the documentation? I do plan to use both CM and CLM, but 
probably not CMN. So if I get them packaged separately, it will be a 
minor inconvenience, and if I get them packaged as a bundle, there might 
be a memory hit at run time I don't need.

Yeah ... especially when you have the option of Guile, Clisp, CMUCL or 
SBCL as you do with CM 2.5.0.
