I think ILISP's days are numbered.

Well, ilisp supports various non-cl lisps/lispoids. If I'm Scheme-ing (and I still do to some extent), ilisp's guile support is sufficiently advanced to make it worth my while to keep ilisp up-to-date and around on my box, though I've just migrated to SLIME for my CL needs.

I found ILISP similarly irritating to deal with, especially when I tried to use it with other complementary CL Emacs packages, like Franz's ELI.

If you're using ILISP solely for Scheme, check out Neil Van Dyke's Quack.

Fast forward two years... :-)

I'm a seasoned C/C++ programmer but just started learning CL. I'm enjoying SLIME quite a bit. I wonder if there's anything in ILISP worth looking into or is SLIME pretty much the way to go for CL?
