ccl:*print-abbreviate-quote* is an arguably useful but non-standard extension
to the printer in CCL.
WITH-STANDARD-IO-SYNTAX is supposed to disable implementation-specific non-standard
extensions (e.g., bind CCL:*PRINT-ABBREVIATE-QUOTE* to NIL.) Until a few years
ago, it didn't do this; I don't remember exactly when that change was made, but I
don't think of it as a recent change.
Swank's test suite apparently expects the old (incorrect) behavior. People
who care about what Swank's test suite does should presumably try to presuade
whoever maintains Swank's test suite to fix it.
