I have a few patches which may be useful. 
The first is Lispworks support , the second is allowing 
a default keyword value for constants (which is quote possibly the wrong
thing) and the third is support for windows (using the dmc[1] compiler).
Please give me a shout if you are interested in any of these patches and
I'll cobble together a diff or 3.

As far as features go number one would be the ability to specify a
default generated lisp file if, for example, the specified compiler is
not available or compilation fails (which given that most people don't
have many headers available on Windows system could be quite useful).
