I'd have to rewrite the stuff that uses them.
I'd probably try to live with the latest clisp that supports them
for a while.

I used generic streams before Gray streams were available.
I assume (without having looked at all) that it wouldn't be difficult
to switch (switch streams in mid ... what?) but surely more trouble
than leaving the code alone.
