Subject: Re: exit-to-system
This function is intended to terminate the running Lisp system in some
appropriate manner. In some implementations or under some circumstances
the Lisp system and all data contained within it may be destroyed, more
or less irretrievably, in which case the user might be left in
communication with the ``operating system'' or ``command shell,'' or
might be ``logged out.'' In other implementations or under other
circumstances this function might do nothing, in which case the call to
QUIT returns NIL (to indicate that the call ``failed'').
Sounds reasonable to me.
