I suspect Swindle is quite stable, but Eli is the expert on that.

Two reasons you might want *not* to use a CLOS-alike for this (even
though I am fond of CLOS, and Swindle is tempting):

  1. You might find it useful to base your planner on Kanren (by Daniel
     P. Friedman and Oleg Kiselyov).  http://kanren.sourceforge.net/

  2. If you want your planner to become a reusable code library for PLT,
     I would first try to use the PLT standard structure types or
     "class.ss" before creating a dependency on a large and nonstandard
