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).
It was so the first time I tried to use them in compiling macsyma.
[A few months ago.] Moon fixed it.
