If jfli-abcl is pure Common Lisp, I offer to package it as a 
ABCL-CONTRIB extension.  JSS is only one of the experiments in Java 
syntax we would like to support in our aim to make the Bear 
polymorphously perverse.

All one needs to do is create a toplevel ASDF definition in 'jfli.asd' 
and move it into 'ABCL_ROOT/contrib/jfli/' in the build tree.

After recompiling, the source may be loaded into the running JVM via the 
CL:REQUIRE mechanism:

	(require :abcl-contrib)
	(require :jfli)

Right now I'm really trying to triage stuff for [abcl-1.1.0][], but if 
you gave me a patch to apply to [ABCL trunk][2], I could easily commit it.

[abcl-1.1.0]: http://trac.common-lisp.net/armedbear/milestone/1.1.0
[2]: http://code.google.com/p/abcl-dynamic-install/source/browse/
