I disagree.  Translators don't have such ports, and making them null
encourages programs to write on them, possibly expecting that the output
will go somewhere.

It seems to me that the lispy translator should do itself whatever
special work is needed if the lisp system demands the ports be open.  It
is a bug in the lisp system, in fact, if it just crashes in those cases.
