Are there any implementations out there that
don't signal errors when a function is given too many or too few args?
In Interlisp, it is not an error to be given extra arguments (they are
silently thrown away) or too few (all arguments are implicitly optional
and default to NIL). While Xerox Common Lisp will signal an error in
such cases, we will also provide a setting of the optimize declarations
that will disable the checking for performance reasons.
