    Would it be possible for the next version of the interpreter
    to permit constructs such as  "(LAMBDA (V1 V2 () V4) . . .)"  to be 
    applicable;  thus one could explicitly show where he expects a lambda-
    variable to be unused, without the compiler complaining.  This is in the
    current COMPLR, but of course is of little value until the interpreter
    will overlook () in the bound var list.
I guess I didn't send out a note, but this has already been implimented
(try :XL).  It does not do the **INTERNAL** frob, it actually ignores the
