Programming since 1984 (at the ripe old age of 15), I only recently (mid-2004) discovered and became a fan of Common Lisp. Now, like many other recent converts, I wish I could write everything in CL.

Toward that end I am planning to build a foundation library for CL that provides most of the features found in the standard Perl, Python, and Ruby libraries. By installing one library (which will be consist mostly of the best existing libraries), new or would-be Common Lispers will get that "batteries included" feeling that so many of todays coders are used to.
