The only blocker I have right now is testing on Windows. The tests pass
for me on all the implementations I have on both Linux and Mac OS X.

As far as implementations, I don't have clasp, mkcl, Genera, Corman, or
ECL, and my clisp is woefully old.  But other than that I have pretty
good coverage.

I'm hoping we can get some Windows tests from Dave Cooper, and if those
come through clean, we can release 3.1.5.
