I wonder, what does Slime use the weak hash table for? Is it some kind
of caching? I have successfully implemented a hash table cache in ECL
using ordinary hash tables and a simple cleanup algorithm. This is
used for method caching and it ended up being the most efficient
alternative. Maybe it would be worth considering it?
