  1. I use logical pathnames and they make my life easier. Here's how...
  2. I used logical pathnames and they made my life miserable. Here's how...
  3. I never tried logical pathnames. Here's why...

Please comment on my blog with your response, or send me an email, and I'll summarize the responses later. (If you don't use logical pathnames because you don't use Common Lisp, no need to respond.)
