  could "Numerical Recipes in Common Lisp" be an idea?  as far as I can see
  from the code in the C version, about 40% of it is directly related to
  managing object types that don't fall naturally into the C domain, and it
  appears that the significant reduction in object management alone would
  make a Common Lisp implementation of much if not all of this interesting.
