There is lots of stuff out there for which it does not really matter
whether one is using CL, Python, Ruby, or any other half-sane

"import X" for stuff like regexps, HTTP, HTML etc. is going to
win. And for good reason, I might add.

Yes. Fortunately, for the important Lisps one just goes to weitz.de and
grabs CL-PPCRE (faster Perl-compatible regexps than Perl!) and
Hunchentoot. HTML generation is another issue, although I'm partial to
CL-WHO (also from Dr. Weitz). For a good portion of the '&c.' weitz.de
is your one-stop shop...
