Aha. You have Modern mode Allegro CL? The trial edition? Any place you 
see me assembling a string and then interning it, look out! There will 
often be a string-upcase there, or some assumption about the case of 
symbol-name, or something like that.

I'll take a look at the macro.

Anything current on Tk is good.

I actually figured out Cello was not really using cl-freetype any more 
when porting it to OS X recently (which came up short on one of the fonts).
