I don't think anyone working on SBCL will consider that as an option: SBCL
is under BSD and parts of it in Public Domain, and I don't think I'm alone
when I say that the unrestrictiveness of the licence is important to me.
Hence we will have to either live with the CrashReporter logs or cook up
an SBCL specific solution using the Mach stuff.
...so, can we look at the code you posted and use it as a starting
point for something to use with SBCL, under BSD-style licence? If not,
we'll just have to work from scratch.
