    The way OPTIMIZERS where originally implemented on the lisp-machine
    was that the function of the same name must have been defined first
    before the optimizer could be called. 

I'm the original implementer of OPTIMIZERS, and I don't think this was
ever so.  It certainly isn't true now (from looking at the code).
