(OPEN 'T) will always do something damaging, why don't we change it to
do the reasonable thing instead?  Clearly, if the person is wanting to
open a new TTY or whatever, he can deal in the right file-object by some
other means.  If you want to think about the semantics of this, consider it
to be that the SYMBOL meaning of T takes precedence over the FILE meaning of
T where the two would conflict.  In the other uses of T, there is no meaningful
interpretation as a SYMBOL, so the interpretation as a FILE stands.  I hope
we aren't going to purpetuate this crock onto NIL except through some
non-default compatiblity package....
