Correct. Except for "clc-clbuild slime" which should start an emacs with

That is the next step in the scheme, first we need to have Far?'s
improved asdf working.

It could be feasable, but when it breaks it's a hellish fight to know why.
I've had ARM related bugs on sbcl/clisp that were kernel and hardware

not be the buildd machines this can make debugging ... interesting.
