there is also gtk-server which doesn't need ffi at all and might be
enough for your needs. It's quite nice to keep the GUI toolkit part in
a separate process and communicate via normal streams; you can even run
an app on a headless server with the non-web gui part on your laptop.
You get network transparent GUI for free.

Thanks for the pointer to [gtk-server](http://www.gtk-server.org/). The
technique is interesting but after closer inspection the project seems to be
waning.

Have you, Tomas (or anyone), used it recently in a Common Lisp project? It
would be super nice to see a comprehensive step-by-step example that starts
with installing the gtk-server dependencies, compiling the source, configuring
a GUI, then interfacing from CCL.
