Isn't (write-sequence "foo" *standard-output*) supposed to just work ? 
This is an example from the HyperSpec. It would be nice if T would also 
be accepted ;-) - but that has probably to do with method dispatch.

? (write-sequence "foo" *standard-output*)

Type :? for other options.

On the other hand, (write-char #\A *standard-output*) and (write-char 
#\A t) do work.
