Case sensitivity (was: CLtL, cleanups)

    Beware that not all "Common Lisp" implementations have successfully (or
    accurately) implemented the readtable mechanism.  I have had trouble
    with set-character-translation on other systems (Symbolics does it right

Huh?  SET-CHARACTER-TRANSLATION is not part of the Common Lisp spec, and
I never suggested that use of it would be portable.  Common Lisp doesn't
provide any way to change character translations, although the draft
ANSI Common Lisp currently includes a mechanism to control case

The question appeared on the SLUG mailing list, not COMMON-LISP, so I
assumed a non-portable solution was acceptable.
