The most interesting aspect of ABCL is that it can compile Lisp to JVM
in a fashion that allows (fsvo) arbitrary intermixture between Java and
Lisp,i.e. Java sees Lisp as Java, Lisp sees Java as Lisp. A natural
intermixture, no ffi involved. Hence, ABCL can not fence in itself in a
closed world as you seem to suggest.
