Yes, you would like such INFO conditions reported on the terminal, but I
would like ALERT conditions [e.g. "style warnings"] to be able to be
included in a DRIBBLE file.  This makes me wonder if the concept of
combining these under the NOTICE condition might not be such a good idea.
It also reminds me of a point I raised a long time ago, that DRIBBLE ought
to bind *ERROR-OUTPUT* as well as *STANDARD-OUTPUT*.  I still think it is
important that we not require compiler error messages to be written in
such a way that they can't be captured in a dribble file.
