|   1. The cut primitive
|   2. Fully interpreted so I can make rapid dynamic changes to the database
|   3. At least a bit flexible and extensible

I haven't gotten as far in the book as to tell whether it is what you want,
but Peter Norvig's {Paradigms of Artificial Intelligence Programming, Case
Studies in Common Lisp} includes a small Prolog engine as part of its vast
array of code and examples.  I generally recommend this book for both style
and contents.

sufficiently advanced political correctness is indistinguishable from sarcasm
