  there is.  Common Lisp vendors take very good care of their customers,
  and if they can help you overcome your association with another vendor,
  they are likely to take very good care of you while in transition.
  that's why competition is so great.

  however, related to the question to which you assume you have the same
  answer you would have for VC++ and GCC: you don't _need_ much help to
  migrate from one Common Lisp implementation to another.  that's one thing
  that is really great about the language: it's actually complete enough to
  do useful things in the language itself.  imagine that!
