Dialects
********

   A "dialect" of lisp is a specific implementation.  For the parts of
Common Lisp which are well specified, they are usually the same.  For
the parts that are not (debugger, top-level loop, etc.), there is
usually the same functionality but different commands.

   ILISP provides the means to specify these differences so that the
ILISP commands will use the specific command peculiar to an
implementation, but still offer the same behavior with the same
interface.
