Questions about OPEN

    You don't seem to follow what Moon and I were saying about
truename (and probe-file) -- in some filesystems it is TOTALLY
IMPOSSIBLE with *any* amount of code to implement the semantics
described in the manual.  The usual cause for this is that the version
number is unknown until the stream is closed.  A secondary problem is
that in some OS'es, a newly created file does not exist in the
filesystem namespace until it is closed.

    In any case, rename-file can only be done on *open* files
according to the CLM.  And if you keep the JFN around for every file
stream there has ever been, when are you going to do the RLJFN?
