Just a question. If one were to implement :TEMPORARY hash tables as
described - i.e. testing to see if the test were #'EQ or #'EQL - well,
just how does one code such a test in CL? Presumably you'd have code like
((#'eq #'eql) (make-em-collectible))
But... there is no way of testing equality of functions, lexical closures,
or what have you, in CL. So how can this possibly be implemented?
