Re: arg order for PUSH
Granting both real arguments for (PUSH place item) [consistency with
other location modifiers and better prettyprinting potential], why
call the damn thing PUSH? Why pick a name that has contrary tendencies\n from BOTH English and Lisp?
How about SUCK? Or if that's sounds negative, IMPRESS or some long
name that seems so popular in T such as SET-THE-NEW-FIRST-ELEMENT?
