I'm not saying that there any common extensions. I'm just saying that
we should all agree to put our extensions in the same package, just like
we agree to put our system hacks in the SYSTEM package. Then the
CLtL could say "hey, any implementation-specific extensions are in
the LISP-EXTENSIONS package. Look there to find all kinds of goodies."
The manual says very little about what goes in the SYSTEM package. The
Symbolics implementation has several other packages where 'system hacks'
live, such as the network package, the TV package, the debugger package,
etc. I'm flaming. Sorry. My first opinion was probably my best. It
is in the archive, and I'll let that opinion stand.
I'm only suggesting we agree on the package name, not on the contents.
