Aside from so-called "legacy" systems (which my current job could 
reasonably be described as), there aren't that many.   But the usual 
example is ITA Software, who not only use Lisp but use a Lisp 
implementation whose compiler I've hacked on in the past.  And they have 
  cute puzzles on their web site


Anyway, so much offtopic.  Thanks for all the comments - yes, my class 
variable should be a constant, and yes, the *arkaby stuff does look a 
lot less like line noise.  Reassuring to know I'm not completely out in 
left-field even if I'm not thinking of anything particularly original
