I'd like to get a release out for abcl-1.0.1, as we shipped with [several things broken][1] notably the ABCL-CONTRIB.  Since everyone seems quite busy, I'd like to volunteer to sign and ship this one, helping to strengthen our release process.  I've set the milestone in Trac for the middle of January, but would rather this happen on the order of days.  It looks like we're going to be able to get to working with closer-mop with abcl-1.1.0, so I want to separate out a stable ABCL that at least works something like what [the Manual][abcl-1.0-user-manual.pdf] describes.

[abcl-1.0-user-manual.pdf]: http://abcl-dynamic-install.googlecode.com/files/abcl-20111108a.pdf

@Erik:  I'll merge the byte array bug you addressed.

@Alessio:  There's a distribution POM for abcl-contrib ('abcl/contrib/pom.xml') that seems to work.  Can you eventually ensure that the update is pushed to Sonatype?  I assume we can easily add new artifacts under the GroupID we currently push abcl-1.0.0.jar with, right?

Fine touches on the Manual; editing CHANGES; testing of the [abcl-1.0.1 branch][2] are all welcome.  I will backport any significant contributions from trunk.  And patches are always more than welcome.
