Re: STATUS, and the first n characters

Past acceptance is no excuse for continuing a crock.  However, there are
so many other things that need working on that I would not seriously
suggest that you drop everything just to fix this one.  I was just really
taken aback to see truncation being done in LISP.  Why was it ever
implemented that way in the first place?  (Let me guess:  table lookup
of STATUS functions by snarfing the first 5 chars of the pname, right?
