Can anyone provide a rationale why WRITE-CHAR isn't called
DISPLAY-CHAR?  Looking at:


it seems that it was DISPLAY-CHAR originally, which in turn suggests
that the change was intentional.

The related question, of course, is whether a procedure to output a
string (or a byte vector or a whatever) should be called WRITE-STRING
