Issue: PRINT-PRETTY-HOOK (version 1)

   Would it help if the pretty print function took an additional optional
   argument, the current print level (the current print length always
   starts at 0 when the function is called.)

I think it makes it more consistent with the structure print functions. I
don't think that you can win all the time, because, if your print function
calls a Common Lisp print function (print, princ...), then you lose the depth.
