I approve of this version.
I also like :internal, and had intended to bring it up before. The comment
- the change to :IMPORT-FROM and :SHADOWING-IMPORT-FROM to call
FIND-SYMBOL instead of INTERN inadvertently made them useless,
since there is no way to assure that non-exported, non-shadowed
symbols exist. . . .
is a bit overly pessimistic here, since internals symbols are created
merely by reading files. But there's no question that defpackage should
have a way of creating internal non-exported, non-shadowing symbols.
