I think that you may have missed the point.  There are certain
functions performed by many (but perhaps not all) of the
implementations of common lisp.   Such functions include stopping
a computation and performing a garbage collection, and exiting to the
operating system.  It would be a good thing if the names for these
functions were the same across all common lisps where such
functionality exists.
