It won't work, as CLISP will still assume that *QUERY-IO*
(*TERMINAL-IO*) is at the beginning of a line as it last read a LF, so
FRESH-LINE will have no effect.

I woulnd' recommend using TERPRI as all uses other than
Emacs + send-string would then see unwanted empty lines.

BTW, Bruno and Daniel, may I suggest to extend USER1.LSP: Y-OR-N-P and
YES-OR-NO-P to recognize the spanish "Si" yes answer, now that this
translation is finished?
