(SETQ MSGFILES 0)
.VAL 0; ...
(SETQ MSGFILES 'FOO)
In .INFO.;LISP NEWS, bad values of MSGFILES are documented to cause an
IO-LOSSAGE type error (after setting MSGFILES to '(T)), similar to the
way bad BASE and IBASE values are treated with FAIL-ACT breaks. Couldn't
Lisp be coaxed to do something along the lines of what it's documented to?
