The XOR function in your list of suggested language improvements
handed out last week was intended to be a joke, wasn't it? I assumed
it was, but other people on the mailing list are taking it seriously,
so I'm asking for clarification.
Of all the functions not in Common Lisp that I use day-to-day on my
3600, this is the one I use most frequently. I admit that I have been,
among other things, constructing logic models of various kinds.
However, I also find it useful in random COND clauses. Maybe the rest
of you will decide it is not useful, but in any case it is not a joke.
