As noted in private to Erik, I think there are a *lot* of problems with
this implementation.  Sure, it "passes" the GCL ANSI tests, but the
level needed for conformance is pretty minimal, so that's not saying much.

Unfortunately, I'm still up to my eyeballs in the "real" world
outside of ABCL (Oh! how I wish to invert this relationship), so I
can't give much more than moral support here at the moment.  What
spare time I have, I am trying to fix the '+' in Pathname bug and
the lack of :WILD-INFERIORS problems.
