I would argue that in the case of cmForth and Novix the environment
was very productive, while extremely lean -- extrapolated to today
it would be still be a world apart from everybody else. A Hemlock-like 
editor with SLIME for CL would still be considered lean, at least if compared 
with crawling horrors that is Eclipse.

Too bad that alternative reality branch was stillborn. It is really nice.
