Side comment: This is what happens when experienced, well-intentioned
Lisp experts decide to put an untested new idea into a language
standard.  In many, perhaps most, cases where we put in new ideas that
had not been tested in "production" circumstances, we got nasty
surprises much later.  This is a fine thing to happen in a growing Lisp
implementation, but not a fine thing to happen in a stable Lisp
