	    (SSTATUS TERPRI...) also still loses for SFA's.
	    Can we have that ask the SFA, too since it may be
	    a TTY driver. Tnx. -kmp
	Isn't SSTATUS TERPRI obsolete anyway?
    It is only obsolete if you are willing to claim that ...
Also, at the time that the bug note was sent, GRINDEF FASL
still did a (SSTATUS TERPRI) as it loaded, causing disaster
if TYI/TYO contained an SFA instead of its default fileobject.
I think, however, that we should support this call on SFA's
so that if other code makes assumptions about the FILEness
of TYI/TYO, people will not lose.
