I'm wondering why SBCL got rid of UNIX-FILE-KIND? It was used by
common-lisp-controller, stumpwm and possibly others...
All words have not a single meaning but a swarm of them, like bees
around a hive. And like that swarm, changing its position
ever-so-slightly with each wingbeat, the word's meanings change a little
with each use upon the tongue or the page. --Maureen O'Brien

It was in an internal package, and its name was no longer appropriate to
its function? (If you are using things in sbcl's internal packages, try
to find an appropriate supported replacement to use instead: in this
case probably sb-posix:lstat).
