      I am trying to convert some graph drawing software to use GRAPHICS:
      functions rather than window operations, and one thing i'm having
      trouble with is clipping.  I need to be able to clip drawing
      operations to the rectangular outline of the graph.  My old software
      modified the TV:CLIPPING-REGION instance variable of the stream being
      drawn on, and that worked fine.  This doesn't work with GRAPHICS:
      functions because the stream you think you are drawing on often has
      nothing to do with the steam you are actually drawing on because you
      are in a maze of twistly little continuations all alike.
  (graphics:with-room-for-graphics ()
    (graphics:with-clipping-path (t #'(lambda (s)
  				      (graphics:draw-rectangle 100 100 200 200 :stream s :filled nil)))
      (graphics:draw-circle 100 100 50)))
  You can construct an arbitrary clipping region by drawing a path that
  surrounds it.

I tried this too, but it has the same problem.  It seems like i'll
have to do most of the clipping myself.
