    QUIT								[Function]
    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.
