Due to a message of yours having bounced from one of the list receivers, I
got to know about your last post, but it does not appear in the mailing

You suggested rewriting QUIT so that it throws to an enclosing catch. I do
not like the idea, because it forces the enclosing code to use SI:TOPLEVEL.
I would rather signal a condition, EXT:EXIT-PROGRAM, and set as default
handler a function that invokes EXIT. This allows you to override the
handler with your own routine and in case that the user provides no handler
it will have the expected behavior.

However, that will have to wait. I am now packing ECL for a new release
before I travel away next week.
