Unfortunately, conditions are somewhat underspecified in Common Lisp.
To the point they're almost useless, for automatic processing or

FWIW, in Java also there's a single exception type to signal all
"could not open file" situations, and it's even misnamed
(java.io.FileNotFoundException). A richer set of conditions - file
does not exist, permission denied, others? - would be nice to have,
but you can't go too deep in detail without creating lots of OS-
specific conditions.
