I'll agree with Larry that reading the description of DESCRIBE seems to
imply a similarity with PRINT that would not make it desirable to do any
input. As several people have pointed out, that's why there's INSPECT.
On the other hand, I don't the standard should be too prescriptive on
what the debugging tools (25.3 of CLtL) may and may not do.
