Upon testing the patch turned out to be somewhere between "heh!"
and "boo!", but ofter a bit of wrestling with Eclipse I have
[committed to ABCL trunk a patchset that allows ABCL to load in an
OSGi context][r12524]. Unfortunately, the patch only works for
Lisp that is loaded by LOAD-SYSTEM-FILE, so I fear that unless one
can address loadable code via "jar:URL" type Pathnames this isn't
going to be terribly useful as an extension mechanism. But we're
better than yesterday, huh?
