CL and modernism

Common Lisp like Smalltalk *traditionally* have been available as large
environments that are essentially operating systems unto themselves. This is
opposed to the post-modern Perl, TCL, Python, Ruby, and JVM languages like
Jacl, JPython, JScheme, SISC, etc. that combine a little of this with a
little of that and can play off each other.
