Thanks for the ref: on page 386. As for some implementations defaulting to
adjustable arrays, page 288 says, of the :adjustable keyword in make-array,
"...if specified and not nil, indicates that it must be possible to alter the
array's size dynamically after it is created. This argument defaults to nil."
Granted, this does not say that a value of nil prohibits adjustability, but
only that it must be adjustable if given non-nil. Do you interpret this as
meaning "nil value *may* indicate it is possible to alter ...."?
I hope there is a way to have guaranteed non-adjustable arrays!
