At the bottom of p. 102 of CLtL2, it says:
"X3J13 voted in June 1988 <90> to define
(functionp x) = (typep x 'function)
Because the vote also specified that types CONS and SYMBOL are disjoint
from type FUNCTION, this is an incompatible change; now FUNCTIONP is in
fact always false of symbols and lists."
MCL 2.0 includes this incompatible change to FUNCTIONP.
