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

            In 7.2, 1dis:defpseudo-system0 is known as 1sct:define-distribution-system0.
            It looks just like a normal unjournalled 1defsystem0, except that you get
            to use wildcards.

        When is 7.2 going to be released and what can I do in the meantime? - Jeff

    7.2 is slated for release in the late spring.  In the meantime, you are
    screwed, unless something like this code works for you.  I think that in
    7.1, 1collect-input-and-outputs0 maight not be a generic function, so you
    may have to massage that somewhat.

Assuming I have compiled and loaded the code which you sent me
(I first hade to figure out that it belonged in package SCT and used
ZetaLisp syntax), what do I incant to get it to run?
I assume that I call sct:define-distribution-system but what arguments
do I give it to dump say my whole file system, Z:>Qobi>**>*.*.*
in a way that it can be reloaded into say, BD:>Siskind>**>*.*.*
Then what magic do I incant after that to actually do the dump
and then later the restore?
