Re: new cleanups

That would be fine, except that there have also been a suggestion
(from Kim Barrett) that perhaps EVALHOOK and friends really ought to
be deprecated, and another one (from Pitman and the Cloe implementors
at Symbolics) that they should either be removed from the language
entirely or somehow marked as being an optional extension, along with
other debugging tools such as STEP and TRACE and the top loop
variables.  Certainly any action like that should be done by a vote of
the full committee rather than handled as an editorial change. 

Also, I'd like to see a clarification that STEP need not be implemented
in terms of EVALHOOK (CLtL page 323).
