But what encoding will you use? UTF-8? Some local encoding in the base
string format? I really do not know what SBCL is doing about the buffer
string there. It does not seem sensible that a low-level routine accepts a
high-level object, a string. It is different with Common Lisp streams:
there you have a sensible, well specified semantics for operating with
large character sets.
