Well, test cases for gray-streams seem pretty hard to find, these days
I just searched for them, but I could not find any real "test cases".
Nevertheless, I have tested this patch.
More specifically, I have an application that uses gray-streams (taken
from comp.lang.lisp), and this seems to work pretty well.
It only uses the "character-output" functions, though.
This piece of code (attached to this mail), is a collection
of macros to produce HTML.
I might hack on some code to test the remaining functionality, but this
might take until next week.
However, I suppose :) the patch works,
1) gray streams work in CMUCL
2) they mainly describe the interface for stream operations.
