I would like clisp to be able to get the lispinit.mem
location from a registry key instead of using -M. To
this end I have modified clisp-2.33.1 to do this.
Included is a patch that loads the lispinit.mem file
based on what is found in "HKLM\SOFTWARE\CLisp\" Using
the string value "initmem".

This makes using lisp much more convenient and is a
very minor change. This code will only attempt to load
lispinit.mem using the registry if -M has not been
passed on the command line.

    1. the patch as it is now done prevents bootstrap.
    2. you should never invoke lisp.exe yourself.
    the next binary distribution for win32 will include a clisp.exe
    driver which will determine the location of lisp.exe and
    lispinit.mem
    from its own location, i.e., all you will need to do is
    create a shortcut
    to it from e.g., your desktop.
    please try the pretest (announced on clisp-list)
