Dunno what Curt means, but I'm probably guilty of muddying the waters here. When I wrote Lisp, what I really should have written "lisp," to indicate that I was talking about the whole family. I really prefer Scheme over Common LISP, and my favourite Scheme is Racket. Is that where you're finding your hygenic macros? Or does elisp have them as well?

Of course, I prefer Clojure over all other lisps, because it's most conducive to me writing production code in places that are already using JVM languages. :)
