	What can one do with the FSMAINT [Active Structure Edit] LMFS interface?

    Lots.  Mostly you can look at the record buffers of files while they are in use
    by LMFS.  Since these change frequently, what you see on the screen is only an
    instantaneous snapshot of what's going on unless you are holding the LMFS lock.
    It also allows you to change things in those data structures (using LMFS::DDT),
    but I'd advise against that 1unless you really know what you are doing.

0OK, I'll bite.  How does one learn enough to know how to use this??  I
feel Symbolics should provide a document in some form that describes
these data structures, though not necessarily as part of the online
docs.  The sources are NOT adequate when you're in a hurry to repair
some file system damage.
