Looking over page 68 of CLtL, I have a question about
From the description, it seems the (DEFVAR <variable>) should
never give <variable> any sort of value. It should simply
"proclaim <variable> to be special and may perform other
system-dependent \bookkeeping-actions/." Giving <variable>
a default value seems like more than simple bookkeeping.
Is this a reasonable interpretation?
