comment Which of these old criticisms of common lisp still apply today?
@Steve314: Lucid CL targets were the market for large Lisp-based AI systems, CAD systems, etc. on Unix workstations and servers. Lucid CL target was not embedded systems. Lucid CL addresses run-time overhead of dynamic typing, heap allocation and many other optimization areas - including a performant garbage collector. Still, GC is mostly needed. Typically application use special techniques to avoid consing and thus to reduce the GC rate, like 'resource' pools.
