What we are advocating is not user-written error messages, but LISP
interpreter error messages.
Funny -- I like the fact that LISP system error messages are all upper case,
because then I can maker mine lower case, and thus immediately tell
whether an error was one detected by the system or by my program.
But I agree -- lower case messages are more readabl, WHEN CORRECTLY
CAPITALIZED AND PUNCTUATED!
