The "problem" with this is that you'll then be able to globally set
*STANDARD-OUTPUT* &c to other values in case of *GLOBALLY-REDIRECT-IO*
from the REPL. You won't be able to do so when *GLOBALLY-REDIRECT-IO* is
NIL, though.

Thus for consistency, I'd suggest to modify CALL-WITH-REDIRECTED-IO to
bind *STANDARD-OUTPUT* &c in any case (if *GLOBALLY-REDIRECT-IO* is T,
they're just bound to themselves.)
