LISP or Lisp

Throughout Guy's book (except the cover), it is spelled "Common Lisp"
rather than "Common LISP" or "COMMON LISP", so that sets the precedent,
I think.  No reason to change.  Guy does use a funny font whenever he
says "Common Lisp", but that doesn't change things.  I think that

McCarthy's LISP 1.5 was all uppercase, I think, but that's because
capital letters were easier to carve on stone tablets.
