IMHO, quite a significant amount of ansi work has already been
accomplished.  The best way to get a feel for the progress is to read
the debian/changelog file in the unstable branch.  Broadly speaking,
defpackage, destructuring-bind, ansi loop, pcl/clos, conditions/clcs,
setf functions, many package handling and defstruct fixes, and that's
jsut what I can think of right now :-).

Take care,
