Quicklisp is now the official installation method for GSLL. As far as I know it is the first and maybe so far the only project to recommend quicklisp as the installation method. Part of my motivation for writing GSLL was to lure^H^H^H^H induce people doing numerical computation into using Lisp, even if only as a desk calculator. A major impediment to that was loading everything up, and quicklisp goes a long way to solving that problem. There is a subtle difficulty in being able to push patches from a frequently-changing library like GSLL but I think we can work around that.

GSLL is great. :) I installed it from the Gentoo Lisp overlay rather than with Quicklisp, but it works very well.
