Just to reply to this point.

I wouldn't distribute it that way. I'd either extract just the class
files necessary and have the build include them in abcl.jar, or just
get the relevant source files, put them in the ABCL source tree, and
adapt them as necessary.

Certainly now that we have the ability to load asds directly from a
jar my plan is to distribute my code as a single jar in which I've
included abcl, the contents of all the jars that my tool depends on,
and all the compiled lisp code. Goodbye class path.

Any yes, of course I can continue to use jsint myself, however as I
found it quite useful I was hoping to spread the goodness around more
widely :)
