[armedbear-devel] Is anybody interested in jfli-abcl?

The conclusion of my opinion about abcl-jfli contrib:

1. Worth to have. One of the advantages of jfli which has not 
    been mentioned here is that it's portable: the java interacting
    lisp code based on jfli will work on other Lisps, not only on ABCL
    (jfli home page for more info about it: http://jfli.sourceforge.net/)

2. About new-class, as I see now some efforts are needed
    to bring it back (not sure how difficult it is). 
    I personally am not able to be involved into the development
    in the foreseeable future. 

    If no-one can fix it now, there is no sense to delay the progress
    by the new-class issue: if there is a ready to use abcl-jfli version 
    without new-class, we could create a contrib in this state, and
    maybe file a track ticket for new-class support.

    Nothing prevents someone to add the new-class support later.

Best regards,
