Might it be possible to add a feature to OPEN to allow
it to open files in 8 bit mode. This might be T(W)ENEX
dependent, but ITS lets you do other things more easily.
Specific application: I want to open a CHA: file and
read it in 8bit. I think ITS does this, but if it doesn't
I can always do SYSCALLs (which I do anyway).
(OPEN "CHA:MIT-OZ.STATUS" '(in 8bit)) ?? I don't care about
the syntax, I would like the functionality.
