I'm up for a release: I'll start in on the CHANGES I know about over the 
next few days, collecting what exists in my various Mercurial patch 
queues.  I'll try to fixup the newly add 'tools' with documentation, but 
don't need to get this finished with a release, as anyone who would 
really care about that level of detail would be tracking us in 
[svn][common-lisp.net] or [hg][abcl-dynamic-install.googlecode.com]

A MUST-FIX for abcl-0.24.0 for me would be [making the compiler correct 
for stack inconsistencies in Alexandria-CURRENT][1].  I have already 
corrected to the fallback to interpreted version in DEFUN, so I'll just 
add code to do the same for top level forms as well.  Unless someone is 
going to fix the compiler for the release?

Once ticket #117 closes I have patches to use [the new ability to create 
synthetic java interfaces using the new classwriter][2] to add callbacks 
written to native C interfaces via JNA to CFFI.
