CLAS <http://dnm.sieve.net/clas.html> has been a back-burner thought 
project for a few years -- I hacked up some concept code around the time I 
"started" it and have done precious little with it since due to Real Life. 
No code is publicly available; it only works with Franz Allegro CL (a few 
versions ago, too) and it's _awful_, though it let me do what I want inside
CLOS and MOP. I'd be happy to work on it with someone if there was interest
in aiding the coding.

I didn't know about ASB, so I should look at that.

Gregor: Is RG source code available, or if not, could it be openly
