Very interesting presentation.

How do you think, is it possible/difficult to implement
Common Lisp with small memory demand (or adjust existing
implementation). Say, have running http server
requiring 200 kB? (or 1 MB).

Contemporary implementations (sbcl, ecl) use
tens of megabytes.

Best regards,
