If you try to do a Grind S Expression from Zwei of something that's longer
than a line, say an object with a lot of instance variables, it causes
an error that there was a throw to "GRIND-DOESNT-FIT-CATCH" and no catch.
I'd suggest there by a grind format for objects printed "#< ... >" which
aligned the variable names and values SETQ style if it didn't fit on one line.
It would also be nice if the reader could read those in if you typed them,
it would just have to send a NEW message to the class name with values it read in.
I think the intention of the ERROR-OUTPUT stream is that error messages should
be printed on it, but all the code in the error handler does (FORMAT T ...) rather
than (FORMAT ERROR-OUTPUT...). This should be simple to change.
