Comment (by felix):

 Replying to [ticket:382 elf]:
 > port-name's return value is ambiguous, as the tagged parenthesised
 symbols are valid filenames as well.  suggestion to remedy this: file
 ports return string values corresponding to the filename.  all others
 return the tag as a symbol, rather than a string.  i also suggest putting
 explicit quotation marks around the filename for the display

 You are right, of course, but I wouldn't want to change the current
 semantics, as this will break backwards compatibility. I implement the
 latter suggestion.
