I have a front-end written in Common Lisp using CLOS (Common Lisp Object
System).  It presently runs on a Symbolics machine and relies on a few
Symbolics Common Lisp functions to create networked tcp byte streams
connected to a Sun running a Mathematica kernel.  I think it would be
a relatively easy port to a non-Lisp-machine Lisp and would be interested
in such a version.  No graphics display capability!  I use it for
a "mathematics computation server" for programs running in Lisp.

Anyone interested?
