[Background: Pete's code works fine in Allegro 4.1b, but doesn't in
CMUCL16b, in particular Loop.]

It turns out that Allegro's using a new implementation of Loop, done
by Glenn Burke at Palladian, derived from MIT Loop 829, to conform to
Ansi Loop. It might be worth it to get it from him, rather than
reworking Loop to conform? Franz distributes the sources with Allegro, which
might imply that it's CopyLefted or some such, though the header
doesn't explicitly say so (it does say it's copyrighted Symbolics,
