If you just want the current CVS version to /use/ SLIME, you can get
it through http, of course:


But, yes, if you actually want to work on SLIME and submit code, this
might be a problem.  Does anyone know how many active developers we
have who are paid by their big company employers to hack SLIME during
their working hours?


But wait, project members use CVS via ssh, don't they?  So, if the CVS
port is blocked, that shouldn't be problem.
