CL Shell: Running Common Lisp as an Emacs subprocess.

The cl-shell package provides a major mode (cl-shell-mode) for running Common Lisp (CL) as an Emacs subprocess. It provides a general mechanism for communication between CL and Emacs which does not rely on extra processes, and should therefore be easily portable to any version of CL. Features include direct (i.e., not through a temp file) evaluation and in-package compilation of forms from lisp-mode buffers, type-ahead and a history mechanism for the cl-shell buffer, and pop-up help facilities for the CL functions documentation, macroexpand and describe. Extensions for Lucid Common Lisp provide pop-up arglists and source file editing. Other extensions are provided to allow editing source files of CLOS or Flavors methods.
