	  I am trying to convert some graph drawing software to use GRAPHICS:
	  functions rather than window operations, and one thing i'm having
	  trouble with is clipping.  I need to be able to clip drawing
	  operations to the rectangular outline of the graph.  My old software
	  modified the TV:CLIPPING-REGION instance variable of the stream being
	  drawn on, and that worked fine.  This doesn't work with GRAPHICS:
	  functions because the stream you think you are drawing on often has
	  nothing to do with the steam you are actually drawing on because you
	  are in a maze of twistly little continuations all alike.
      (graphics:with-room-for-graphics ()
	(graphics:with-clipping-path (t #'(lambda (s)
					  (graphics:draw-rectangle 100 100 200 200 :stream s :filled nil)))
	  (graphics:draw-circle 100 100 50)))
      You can construct an arbitrary clipping region by drawing a path that
      surrounds it.

    I tried this too, but it has the same problem.  It seems like i'll
    have to do most of the clipping myself.

Please send a real bug report if it does not work.  All clipping
examples I have tried work properly.
