one way around the dilemma of argument checking is to include a
(destructure-args form (arg1 arg2 arg3) ...)
which 'destructured' form, performed the same arg checking that macro
expansion did, and then executed ....
This is called destructuring-bind, but it's not in Common Lisp. Suggestions
for better names are welcome. I think the lousy name is the reason why I
didn't push for including it in Common Lisp.
