The description of *random-state* in the Laser edition requires
that it be possible to print out a RANDOM-STATE object and read it
back in "suvvessfully". This wording is not as clear as it should be,
but the intent was that you can use PRINT to squirrel away and
READ to retrieve a RANDOM-STATE that would be good for multiple sessions
of a single implementation. Does this accomplish what you want?
