I have never been very happy with either NIL or IGNORE.
For one thing nmemonic names are often desirable even for unused variables.
Putting the unused variables in the front of the function
resolves the problem but makes for very obscure code for anyone
who doesn't know the hack.
For what its worth here's my proposal.
(defun foo (bar &useless i-am-a-unused-variable zap ...)
