General question about Garbage Collection

Whatever is on your mind, whether Lisp related or not.

There was once a loadable kernel module that was more-or-less an incomplete(in implementation of the standard) repl.
You sent things to /dev/lisp and got results back in sto.
It's dead, at the moment.

I think it's a decent idea, though.
Maybe not in such a 'unixy' way, but maybe so...

If it was made to be stable enough and permissions were implemented the result could be interesting.

Instead of using ECL, you could use most other implementations to do that, couldn't you?
Sorry for my bad english.

If your model is going to be one big lisp image that contains everything, then most other implementation will do. If you want Hello World to be less than 20k when compiled into an executable, and you don't want everything riding in one image, then ECL would be a little better to that end.
