In system 27.7, with microcode 663, on LISP Machine Nine:
The dribble package doesn't really do the right thing in some sense.
If one types F O O [rubout] [rubout] R O B, then what goes
into the dribble file is F O O R O B. Either rubbed-out
things should not appear, or else [rubout]s and [form]s and
all that gicky stuff should appear. I would prefer the former.
(PDP-10 MacLISP arranges not to echo a character until it has
"really" been accepted by the reader in some sense.)
