Thank you all for the responses.
Basically emacs + slime seem to be the standard way to write abcl programs.

I have used emacs some years ago but I think I will have to relearn it to be able to be productive again.

1) You said "acbl should be a NB project natively" what do you mean by that?" 
2) Does anyone on the list have experience with lispbox? I read it defaults to clozure.

I'd like to add that the "slime" package is normally used with emacs.  It allows emacs to connect to and and interact with a running ABCL instance.
