"theoretically possible" isn't too encouraging.  Maybe I should
take a closer look at my goals and (still speculative) approach.

The program uses McCLIM to provide a single, tabbed window.  I'd
like to retain the back-end logic, but replace the front end with
a JavaScript single page application, using D3.js, jQuery UI, etc. 

Given that McCLIM isn't currently supported on ABCL, it probably
makes sense to do the GUI conversion first.  Certainly, porting
McCLIM to ABCL only to discard it seems like a waste of effort.

So, recasting the question, are there any web server libraries I
should consider?  I'd like something pretty minimal (ala Rack or
Sinatra); all I need to do is handle requests from a client and
respond with appropriate data structures (eg, JSON, EDN).

On a related front, I'd love to hear about any work in using EDN
with Common Lisp:
