Issue: SETF-FUNCTION-VS-MACRO (Version 3)

My notes from Fairfax meeting:
KMP: Moon thinks it's important to get this vote on in some form soon,
even if it takes an ammendment to leave out SYMBOL-FUNCTION and TRACE.
Sandra brought an ammendment slide...
Remove SYMBOL-FUNCTION, TRACE and UNTRACE from the list of affected
Add a new function:
FDEFINITION <spec> [Function]
The current global function definition named by <spec> is returned.
It is an error if the <spec> has no function definition.
<spec> must be either a symbol or a list of the form (SETF <symbol>).
FDEFINITION may be used with SETF to alter the global function
JonL, Gregor: De-couple the issue from the issue of essential
functionality from that of function specs.
The discussion ended due to lack of time.
