       Note that on page 23-17 of the spec, it says that the presentation is
       *not* inserted in the output history if output recording is off.  I
       was counting on this to use the idiom of creating a bunch of output
       records with output recording and drawing off, insert them into the
       appropriate place in the output history, and replay them myself.  This
       almost worked except for the fact that the presentation output record
       was inserted at the top level of the history (when I ran things to
       create an output record) and in another place in the history when I
       inserted it there myself.

    Ah, you definitely want with-output-to-output-record.  Then you don't
    even turn recording off, you just collect the output records in a
    separate "root" record, which you splice into the history at your

Yeah, for sure.

I'm still not sure whether or not CLIM should jam the thing into the
output history when recording was disabled.  I think not, but at least
there are simple workarounds.
