Well, if that's the case then the prudent thing to do is just leave
the gcl conditionalizations in place.

Before you get started, let's consider what can be done here.
I can see a few tasks:
(1) Identify conditionalizations for non-CL Lisp varieties and remove them.
(2) Locate commented-out blocks of code and remove them.
(3) Locate functions which cannot be called from Maxima and remove them.
It looks to me that making conditional code into unconditional
(e.g. changing #+gcl (foo) to just (foo)) is not a change in the
same league as these others; it requires much more care.
So at this point I would rather not attempt it.
Andreas, maybe you can outline the changes you are planning to make.
Maybe others want to add or subtract items from the list above.

You can post patches the Sourceforge patch manager,
Or if you have access to some other website you could post
them there. It seems likely these patches will be too big for
the mailing list.
Let's see how it goes and if the patches submitted meet general
approval then I can give you cvs write access.
All the best,
