Why does the editor problem have to be so hard? It seems to me that if
programmers would make the call to in-package be the first lisp form in
the file, the editor would have no more trouble setting up the proper
package context than it would with the magic comment crock.
What if there are some IMPORT forms following the IN-PACKAGE form?
What if there are some IMPORT forms 3/4 of the way into the file?
How does the editor know when to stop scanning for such forms?
