	    1) You call PRINC and WRITE, which don't work to CLIM streams because
	    there's no stream integration between standard CL streams and CLIM
	    streams.  Use [CLIM:]FORMAT ~A or ~S, which we've made basically
	    "compatible."  In the Genera version of CLIM, this is less of an issue
	    because Symbolics worked on this quite a bit.  It will, however, continue
	    to be an issue for the near term in other Lisps.

	My I suggest that the CLIM documentation specifically point out this

    Actually, there was documentation about this issue around page 55
    of the Reference Manual in an earlier version -- it appears to have
    gotten lost.  We'll restore it for the real release and add it to
    the errata.

In the Allegro 4.0 version, PRINT (and READ) work on CLIM streams, since
they implemented the Gray stream protocol, which we just use in the
obvious way.  I'm hoping that we'll be able to do that for at least
Genera as well as Allegro by 1.0; I don't know enought about Lucid or the
other Lisp implementations to know how easy it will be to do the rest...
