  "Allegro Common Lisp" was used both of the CLtL1-based Windows version
  (latest was 3.0.2) and the Real Thing under Unix (latest 4.3.1).  _lots_
  of things were seriously broken in ACL 3 for Windows that worked fine in
  ACL 4 for Unix.  thankfully, this horrible confusion is now history, and
  all platforms use the same system, now, in ACL 5.0.
