I've been using CMUCL on several fairly low-load sites,
the busiest getting ~60k hits in the last 3 years, with
peak traffic being one every couple of seconds [like I said,
"low-load"], and even though I do use its green threads
[spawning a new one for every HTTP request] it's never
crashed on me.

[My *app* occasionally crashed in the early days, but
that wasn't CMUCL's fault! And I was able to patch it
and keep running without restarting CMUCL.]

My app infrastructure uses HTOUT <>
for HTML generation, and PG <>
to connect to PostgreSQL.

YMMV, but I think it'd be just fine for the development
and early-deployment stages. If you had to switch to
something else later, well, at least you'd have some
realistic working code to benchmark it with!
