    One thing I wondered about is why the Symbolics FTP server
    responds to the LIST and NLST commands with exactly the same data?
    Was there a reason for leaving out the usual data like creation
    dates and sizes and such?

Because the code for :LIST says
          ;; Some day do better than this.
and then calls the NLST code. Thanks for pointing this out.
