See [jeannie][] for an initial wrapping of Jena with ABCL.  It doesn't 
do much more than read RDF from a PATHNAME, but adding the rest is a 
matter of rolling up the proverbial sleeves.

As much of CLOS/MOP as possible has been implemented in Lisp: see 
clos.lisp.  CLOS is mostly historical, evolving in fits and starts over 
the lifetime of ABCL.  The MOP has been added mostly of the last year by 
Rudi Schlatte.  Following his commits chronologically would give 
somewhat of an impression of how it is implemented.

No sweat:  we should still be here when you get some time.
