I'd be most interested to know how the LispM dealt with:

 - Storage. Files? Persistent objects? A directory structure?
 - Devices. Are there printer objects in a "printers" directory?
   Or are printers not "reified", meaning there's something like
   a (send-to-printer <printer-number> <string>), ie a programmer-level
   only thing like DOS and Windows do it?
