Does WITH-OPEN-FILE exist in MacLisp ?  It would be a very nice
thing to have.  I'd define a robust version of it, but I don't
know how MacLisp does UNWIND-PROTECTs and such.  (If you take
out the clean-up code, it's very simple.)

This may be a stupid question, but why don't the objects
returned by OPEN accept messages like :TYO, :TYI, :STRING-OUT,
:LINE-OUT, :TRUENAME, and so on ?  All they seem to accept are
very general messages that would be handled by the Lisp Machine
