I can only guess.  The spec says very little about the title pane.  It
doesn't even mention any :initarg or a slot that can be used to give a
title.  It does mention the name of the display function, but doesn't
say anything else about it.  That's probably the reason nobody
implemented it.

It should not be very hard to do this.  If you can give me some
examples of how to use it and what is supposed to happen when the
title pane is displayed, or better yet, some code, I'll be happy to
put it in.

Greenspun's Tenth Rule of Programming: any sufficiently complicated C
or Fortran program contains an ad hoc informally-specified bug-ridden
slow implementation of half of Common Lisp.
