Before you change the syntax of OPEN, I believe that it
currently allows (open "FOO" ':OUT), and variations. Thus
there is an ambiguity with (open "FOO" ':OUT ':NOERROR):
Is :NOERROR an exception handler or not?
Actually, the more I think about it, a syntax such as
(OPENF "FOO" ':MODE ':READ ...) *would* be awful convenient
in a lot of places...
