Subject: Flushable functions?
I think these symbols are flushable from the default environment:
UWRITE, UFILE, UKILL, UREAD, UPROBE, UAPPEND, CRUNIT, UCLOSE.
I can't believe that any system code depends on them or that
any large-system programmer couldn't do without them.
For people with old-code I think a well-advertised old-maclisp
compatibility file would suffice.
RWK has suggested an autoloadable function which would simply putprop a
lot of autoload properties for "useful" MacLISP facilities. A long
time ago, such a thing existed on the LIBLSP directory in order to
put autoload properties for each function thereon.
MACSYMA still uses these, unless someone has finally changed them
very recently. Not that it should be converted.
