From: Doyle at MIT-AI (Jon Doyle)
I would like to propose a change to the Zwei command Evaluate Defun (ctl-top-E) so
that it would not print out the value if the form being evaluated was indeed a defun
(or other DEF-thing), on the assumption that all these things evaluate to their
names. I am continually irritated by the fact that while I can compile a function
without trouble, I can't evaluate one without causing a time-consuming halt and
screen redisplay. I am willing to put up with this when I evaluate a non-DEF form,
but in the normal case it is a loss.
I vote with Jon.
