The planned scheme with save-file could be hacked to be a little bit
more winning. 1) Lisp would have to be changed to never recons
a file-object, when it is given one for the first argument. and 2)
Macsyma should open the original file object in FIXNUM mode, which
will cause it to take up the maximum amount of space, so that the
user will be guaranteed to have enough room for the file object, no matter
what the mode he wants to use. The reason why this would be good, is that
the PLOT2 package wants to use that file-object to copy files, and
I needs fixnum mode to do it.
