I consider Skef Wholey to be incorrect when he says that "it is
an error" to redefine BUILT-IN keyword functions. In the
published Common LISP manual on page 90 under the heading
"symbol-function" I see:
The global function definitiion of a symbol may be altered by
using setf with symbol-function. . . . It is an error to
attempt to redefine the name of a special form (see Table 5-1).
Does anyone else know differently from this?
