(defmacro foo (&whole w) ...)

    It should be entirely self-consistent:  (&whole w) should bind w to 
    the macro form, and REQUIRE no arguments.  If what you want is to hack
    with arbitrary arguments, just use (&rest args), and i bet you don't want
    the car of the form most the time then anyway.

I agree.  Common Lisp needs as much consistency and simplicity as it can
get, at this point.
