Proposal #9 Status: Variable Name Conflicts

In response to: DCP@TENEX.SCRC.Symbolics.COM

    I think PROGV should be removed from the list of forms that check for
    variable name conflicts.  I think variable name conflicts should be
    detected by the compiler; not the runtime system.  I think the semantics
    of PROGV are that the LAST symbol/value pair takes presedence in case
    there is more than one pair for a given symbol.

As I said in response to this question earlier, nobody is proposing a
"list of forms that CHECK FOR variable name conflicts".  There is a
proposal for forms in which the use of duplicate variable names "is an
error".  Not the same thing.
