Yes.  Could this be solved by simply adding stream-read-sequence and
stream-write-sequence methods to the protocol?  Probably not if we
need to keep track of column position as well, which is another reason
for eliminating the GFs that talk about columns.

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.
