Re: ---

    Could you be more specific about the damage that has been done?  How
    does this get you in trouble?  If what you are doing is hiding a symbol,
    how does the previously interned wider scope symbol interfere?

Interning a symbol in a package other than where you really want it can
cause problems later on: if the user should change the package structure
using USE-PACKAGE, IMPORT, or EXPORT, an unexpected name clash can occur
because of the unintended symbol in the package.
