In the version of ZWEI on system 25.0, with microcode 612, on LISP Machine Two:
(a) It would be really useful if some command (maybe C-U C-M-Z ?) caused
the portion of the buffer from the beginning of the current DEFUN to
the end of the buffer to be evaluated. This would be good if you did C-M-Z,
encountered an error in evaluation, went and edited the bad place, and then
wanted to continue.
(b) C-M-& (Frob LISP Conditional) seems to be extremely marginal.
It doesn't always work (but I can't reconstruct the bug); it does
more than it is advertised to do, i.e. the documentation loses
(e.g. it frobs OR's too); and it leaves the cursor in a completely
random place such that two C-M-&'s issues consecutively fail
to be the identity operation.
(c) In case my previous complaint has been forgotten, C-M-Q is still
failing to indent comments properly; on EVERY line in the range
a C-M-Q, one should first do a LISP indent, and then if there is
a comment on the line do a comment indent.
(d) If LISP Electric Shift Lock can tell whether you're in a comment,
then so can TAB. I suggest that TAB behave as a sinple self-inserting
character in LISP mode if you're in a comment.
