Hi Camm,

  Indeed, I believe that where ANSI Common Lisp is silent and or
deficient in terms of system programming, it makes sense for GCL
to borrow from POSIX specification.  Mainstream proramming languages
that support system building either borrow from POSIX or have bindings
to POSIX.  

  [There is also an ongoing effort to have a POSIX binding for C++, and
the C++ committee is also considering adding support for POSIX thread, 
independently of whatever the binding group does. ]
