I would be nice if DEFUN checked for "documentation strings", like
DEFUN& does.  Also, I'm not sure if the following complaint was
ever fixed:
   Date: 2 October 1980 18:24-EDT

   Subject: DEFUN doesn't check enough
   By the way, with STRING loaded, (DEFUN "ABC" (X) ...) returns **SELF-EVAL**.
   I dread to think what is happening internally in order to achieve this
   wondrous effect. I suspect it thinks it sees a list in the name position and
   is randomly CDR'ing it. It seems to put a **CLASS-SELF-EVAL** property
   of (LAMBDA (X) ...) on it.
