[Openmcl-devel] Hemlock ain't Fred

I'm trying to manipulate Hemlock windows in the new IDE the way I used  
to be able to manipulate Fred windows.  Turns out I can't just do e.g.

(insert-string mark string)

Instead I have to do this:

(let ((HEMLOCK-INTERNALS::*BUFFER-GAP-CONTEXT* (hi::buffer-gap-context  
(line-buffer (mark-line mark)))))
  (insert-string mark "foo"))

which is not a show stopper, but it's damned annoying.  What is this  
*BUFFER-GAP-CONTEXT* thing and why isn't it bound automatically?
