Re: Issue GC-MESSAGES (Version 2)

Just catching up on old cleanup mail...

If we do want to address the problem of standardizing GC-message typeout, I
prefer the kind of solution that KMP describes for the Symbolics system: a
special variable that directs GC messages to some specified stream, or that
disables them if it is NIL.  The proposed WITH-GC-STATUS macro only lets
you control typeout messages for the things it surrounds; a special
variable would give you global control as well.
