re: encourage no side-effect garbage

My last comment in my proposal should be amended to say that what I
find distasteful is storage allocated in executing a Common Lisp
function that not returned to me as part of the return value AND
becomes garbage immediately upon return of the function.  Obviously
Lisp maintains internal state that includes allocated storage not
available to the user; this is not the object of my "distaste".
