There are two major GTK bindings in the CL world that I know of:
CL-GTK, and CLG.  CL-GTK does RPC over a socket or pipe, and CLG uses
UFFI.  I like the CL-GTK approach, personally, so it's what I play
with.  The version on tenkan.org is the newest (that compiles) that I
know of.

CL-GTK is LGPL; you can import it into any CVS you want.  I hardly
maintain my personal CVS of it, so I'm not about to volunteer to
maintain anybody else's.  CL-GTK is meant to be as CL implementation
independant as possible, so I see no particular reason for it to be in
the GCL CVS unless the GCL developers are planning to maintain it, or
at least mirror development elsewhere.

The original author of CL-GTK is Gilbert Baumann, and he certainly
knows the ins and outs of it at least as well as I do.  I of course
cannot speak for him.
