My notes from Fairfax meeting...
Steele did some poking around in CLtL and verified that indeed, dotted lists
are explicitly permitted at recursive levels of DEFMACRO destructuring. As
such, it was decided that the most consistent approach would be to require
them to be permitted at toplevel as well.
KMP will write next draft of this issue, changing the sense as agreed.
JonL: Gratuitous: We shouldn't take any action that would cause work for
either users or implementors without substantial potential gain.
