Franz Inc's support for Allegro Common Lisp is at this level.  I've
never had to support multiple platforms simultaneously with their stuff
(serially, yes), but emailed bug reports get you a robot response
immediately, a developer response within a day or two, and
fixes/workarounds almost as fast.

Disclaimer: I'm a customer of Franz whenever I can talk my employers
into paying for it.
