Hey, you can do that even in Common-Lisp. Packages are the way to go
and the ways to do that have been greatly discussed in comp.lang.lisp

That is really not my priority right now. The file cage I will
probably add in the near future, though, because apart from that the
rest is a matter of doing things in Common-Lisp to remove functions
which you might think of as dangerous (Right now none comes to my
mind. The worst thing you can do in pure Common-Lisp is to trash your
Common-Lisp environment).
