I use Lispworks extensively, including the IDE and the GUI library (CAPI).
The lispworks IDE is so well integrated that I have no desire to go back
to emacs. In fact, when I tried SBCL and slime recently, I was
deeply disappointed (maybe someone needs to give me a tour :-).
I lean on the visual stepper and inspector a lot.
Is your question about CAPI or about the IDE?
CAPI is a sensibly designed and very powerful library for building GUI's.
 I do keep emacs around for non-lisp activity, and, for the fact that
its regex-replace stuff is very powerful (and familiar to me after a few
decades). Once in a while, I have to make a mass-edit to a lisp program
that is easier in emacs.
