Just a minor thing. I think in CLLIB:url.lisp there
should be a global variable, something like
*user-agent*, so you could change the User-Agent banner
in URL-OPEN-HTTP, thus following the good etiquette
rule that robots/spiders/etc should identify themselves
when crawling/operating.

It is better to have a variable than to change the
source ... :)

Thanks!
