  But this should be one of the easier things to fix, right?  Apart
  from the overpowering desire to redesign the often incredibly stupid
  system call interfaces which could slow down any programmer, there's
  nothing substantial to make Common Lisp less suitable to chat with
  system calls than C is.

  If this is not what you expected, please alter your expectations.
