The following is also another reason why the various file systems should
write their output to a temporary file which will still be there even if it
doesn't get closed properly.
    When building a system, files get compiled and the error messages go to
    a buffer. I think there should be a provision for them to go to a file
    instead/additionally. The reason is that if I boot to a fresh band, do a
    make-system (which compiles some files) and my cadr wedges after having 
    compiled some of the files but not all of them or having compiled all of them
    but not having dumped, i lose all the useful error messages the compiler
    has given me because they are stuck in a buffer that goes away when I have
    to cold boot out. -kmp
