    This looks pretty good, except I think many implementations would
    prefer not to have a requirement that *TERMINAL-IO* be a Common Lisp
    stream.  Already most implementations bind *TERMINAL-IO* to
    implementation dependent streams, and I think in this case it's
    best to continue the status quo.

*TERMINAL-IO* obviously has to be bound to a Common Lisp stream in
that it has to work for all of the Common Lisp IO functions, etc. that
take stream arguments.  Other than that, I don't see that the proposal
prevents *TERMINAL-IO* from being bound to an implementation dependent
stream type.
