    From: Doyle at MIT-AI (Jon Doyle)

    I would like to propose a change to the Zwei command Evaluate Defun (ctl-top-E) so
    that it would not print out the value if the form being evaluated was indeed a defun
    (or other DEF-thing), on the assumption that all these things evaluate to their
    names.  I am continually irritated by the fact that while I can compile a function
    without trouble, I can't evaluate one without causing a time-consuming halt and
    screen redisplay.  I am willing to put up with this when I evaluate a non-DEF form,
    but in the normal case it is a loss. 

I vote with Jon.
