I'm glad someone finds it exciting; it seems to be attracting very little attention
Creating a vendor neutral cclan (vn-cclan) package is approximately as simple as making your lisp build using asdf then running (cclan:make-tar-file 'system-name). Eventually we'll have functions to convert into rpms, debian packages and so on as well; as a package maintainer you won't actually need to maintain the different formats by hand. People should try it...
asdf is at http://ww.telent.net/cliki/asdf

csr21@zeus:~$ grep cclan /var/log/apache/access_log
Actually, that's a lie. crawl8.googlebot.com has been spotted looking at one or two cclan things. But currently no humans at all.
