I guess I was hoping in vain that ensure-generic-function would be given
a more consistent name. Just forget it. But before you forget it, think
about the fact that ensure-generic-function takes an environment argument
but symbol-function doesn't; thus you can't check whether a generic function
exists in the compile time environment without creating it.
I suspect that cleanup committee proposals to `fix' symbol-function,
symbol-macro, fboundp etc. are needed before this stuff can work
So I guess I am saying we should finesse this using the argument that it
is (partly) outside of our charter.
