  Hi Alessio,

  This looks very interesting, thanks! I have written a Swing interface
  with ABCL for some data visualization at work (also using MigLayout,
  which is great), and it looks like Snow would result in less verbiage.
  In particular, the ugliest parts of my code are for event handling and
  triggering changes elsewhere in the application, it it looks like your
  use of JGoodies & Cells might make that much cleaner.

  There are some very useful-looking functions for Java interfacing in

  I have had trouble overriding the repaint() method, to draw in a Panel
  (runtime-class.lisp is a little fragile, it seems). Have you worked on
