Ouch.  LAST may be a misnomer, but then so is CDR.  Are you guys
implementing a better Lisp, or inventing a new language related to Lisp?

Why not leave LAST alone and write two trivial macros, LASTEL and LASTCDR?
(Or have LASTEL and LASTCDR, and supply old-style LAST as a builtin macro
for compatibility?)

There is a lot to be said for compatibility.  When compatibility is out, at
least avoid recycling names!
