Re: Intercepting undefined function errors

It would seem that redefining symbol-function is at best a poor man's 
solution.  The problem is that the compiler should (hopefully will) ignore
this by open coding function refs.  This means that the 'autoload' code will
only work in the interpreter.  The right solution is contributed by the 
current error proposal awaiting implementation.  This would allow user 
code to catch errors and define proceed functions as in the Symbolics
error handler style.
