unless people are being very careful in how they use optimize declarations
in the different lisp implementations,
it is possible that a factor of 2 to 10 speedup remains to be obtained.
Care in this generally requires using profiling tools to see where time is
spent on particular calculations of interest,.
More important is your observation that one lisp or another has bugs!
