http://trac.clozure.com/ccl/ticket/3 is a long-standing bug.
The question is: should (format t "~<Options: ~:>") signal
describes this directive.
As I read this description today, I'm leaning towards considering
ticket:3 as not a bug. (After all, an "arbitrary format string"
doesn't necessarily contain any directives.) Perversely enough,
however, I just committed a change that complains when ~<...~>
gets no arguments.
I'm now not sure what the correct behavior is. I want ticket:3,
which has been mocking me for years now, to be resolved, but I'm
not sure that my so-called fix I just committed is even the right
