Perhaps.  The other strategy is to let the users test.  People who
care about SLIME on those platforms will send bug reports.  If no one
cares, no time is wasted on testing.

However, if you'd like to give an account on your machine, I could be
inclined to run some tests on it :-)

OK, the CVS supports fd-handlers.  You can enable it by adding
something like this to your ~/.swank.lisp:

  (setq swank::*swank-in-background* :fd-handler)
