  What nonsense.  The _function_ named print-circle is a common-graphics
  feature, but the _variable_ named *print-circle* (note the asterisks) is
  part of standard Common Lisp.  If you use the documentation for Allegro
  CL 6.0, at least follow the links and pay attention so you do not make it
  appear that you confusion is Franz's fault.

  In a fight for something, the fight is a loss, victory merely relief.
