Has anyone on these two mailing lists either observed the
behaviour alleged by GJC below, or been inconvenienced by it?
This may be a moot point since both versions of UMLMAC, 33 and 34,
were installed for only a short time, and have not been current
for many days.

    Before JONLism: "MC:LSPSRC;UMLMAC 33"
    (selectq x (a b)) ==> (COND ((EQ X 'A) B))
    After JONLism: "MC:LSPSRC;UMLMAC 34"
    (selectq x (a b)) ==>
       (AND (EQ (TYPEP X) 'SYMBOL) (COND ((EQ X 'A) B)))
    Just what are people to think when you replace good
    code with this kind of junk? Are we to say, well, it
    is "adequately efficient?" [your term]
