Re: I don't think the issue is whether or not users can tell whether arrays
are simple or adjustable. . . .
Whether or not that is the issue with Loosemore's complaint, it is indeed a
requirement of Common Lisp -- a user need only do (typep x 'simple-array).
See CLtL page 34 where simple-array is defined as a subtype of array.
Note also that everywhere "subtype" is used, it means "proper subtype".
