Re: DIGITP not yet resolved?

Last month there was a lot of discussion about the name "DIGITP" -- 
has any proposal met with general approval yet?  If not, how about
   DIGITP --  returns only "True" or "False" (however encoded) and
              is "True" only for the 10 decimal digits.
   DIGIT-WEIGHT -- returns "False" only for characters which are not 
                   used as digits in any of the bases 2 - 36.; otherwise
                   extracts the "weight" and returns it as a fixnum.
Should either (or both) signal an error when the argument is not
implicitly a character?  I think perhaps DIGIT-WEIGHT should; but DIGITP
could, like FIXNUMP, be a total function.
