Catching up from two weeks ago [sorry 'bout that]...
I see there is one thing no-one else mentioned:

Yes, I know you later got rid of the CONS and can now use ACROSS
instead of IN, but if for some reason you hadn't done that, you
might be able to get a mild performance improvement by replacing:
for c in (cons nil (loop for c across string collect c))
for c in (cons nil (coerce string 'list)))
