Re: multiple-color drawing...

At the moment the best you can do is to find the bounding rectangle of
text you are going to draw, draw a filled rectangle in the text
and then draw the text in the text foreground. This works fine if you
drawing all your text explicitly with calls to draw-text - but it
tricky if your text output is produced by format onto a clim-stream
a filling-output for example.
SURROUNDING-OUTPUT-WITH-BORDER already does the right thing.
But how can I use SURROUNDING-OUTPUT-WITH-BORDER to do the trick of drawing a
filled (and opaque) background rectangle *behind* the surrounded stuff?
