opening files in 8 bit.

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.
