[slime-devel] Re: Using SLIME with OpenMCL with Obj-C bridge

After some clarification and experimentation, it looks like what needs 
to happen is something along the lines of (setf 
*listener-autorelease-pool* (ccl::create-autorelease-pool)) being 
executed on a newly created thread and a corresponding cleanup call that 
should be executed before the thread terminates.  Do any hooks exist for 
this purpose?
