Yes, that's right. These are pre-cooked classes and functions.
To do it manually, you need two steps:
(out (blob Article 'body)
(prinl "a really long text") )
(put!> Article 'body T)
If you put 'NIL' instead of 'T', the blob is deleted. It will be removed
the next time by 'dbgc'. Alternatively you could remove it immediately:
(call 'rm (blob Article 'body))
(put!> Article 'body NIL)
