|   Can someone explain what 'ISO Lisp' is?  Is it 'ISO' as in
|   'International Standard'?  If so I didn't realise such a standard
|   existed.  (I know Common Lisp became an ANSI standard back in 1994.)

ISO DIS 13816 Information technology -- Programming languages, their
environments and system software interaces -- LISP.

it's only 127 normative pages.  voting on it terminates 1996-09-23.  talk
to the BSI (British Standards Institute) about getting a review copy and
offer your reasons for rejecting or approving it.
