So how *DO* I use distribution tapes instead of carry tapes?

    O.K. now you have all stumped me. I give up. So tell me how *DO* I write a
    system distribution tape containing all of my files. I want *ALL* of my files
    in *ALL* subdirectories with *ALL* versions. Not just binaries and sources.
    I also don't want to have to redifine either the logical pathname translations
    or the defsystem every time I make a new file or subdirectory.
There's no need to redefine the logical pathname translations each time,
and the translations you gave should be fine.
    I incanted the following which failed:

    (fs:set-logical-pathname-host "qobi"
	    :physical-host "Zermatt"
	    :translations '(("qobi:**;" ">Qobi>**>")))

    (defsystem qobi
	    (:default-pathname "qobi:**;")
	    (:serial "*.*.*"))

    :Distribute Systems qobi 1

    as well as several other variations.
    HELP! All I want to do is to move files from place to place and to take
    some redundant backups from time to time. Why is this so painfull?

It turns out that the functionality I was refering to (which was
called 1dis:defpseudo-system0 in 6.1) is missing in 7.0 and 7.1, and
being replaced in 7.2.

I imagine it shouldn't be too hard to create a new SCT module type
to accomplish the task in the meantime, but it's clearly more trouble
than you should have to suffer.
