No release yet,  the version on svn trunk announces itself as 
"abcl-0.16.0-dev".  Maybe I should have put "upcoming 0.16 release".

When 0.16 comes out the door, and FreeBSD (and others?) updates its 
port, I'll remove the compatibility code.  Right now we have to support 
at least abcl-0.15.   Does that satisfy your concerns?  I would like to 
keep SLIME HEAD working with ABCL HEAD, but maybe you wish to do this 
just with patches back and forth?
