Re: cutting corners in STATUS ?

STATUS is explicitly permitted to look at only the first N characters
of a status name, and (STATUS STATUS) is permitted to truncate names to N
characters.  This may be a loss, but it *is* documented in the 1978
version, at least, of the MacLISP manual (chapter 3).

Actually, STATUS is a moderately non-LISPish thing to do.
