Issue: PACKAGE-CLUTTER (Version 4)

My notes from Fairfax meeting...

X3J13 meeting:

 Haflich had a comment about IMPORT that I didn't understand.

 Sandra: Good but doesn't go far enough. It should also say that
	 LISPxLISP properties were not ok -- ie, that you could
 	 have implementations with initial properties on LISP
	 symbols only if indicators were non-LISP symbols, and
	 symbols with LISP indicators if those symbols were
	 not on LISP.

 JonL: Clarify relation to LISP-SYMBOL-REDEFINITION. In particular,
       users -should- be permitted to put LISP-package properties
       on other LISP symbols, mostly for interactive convenience.
       The practice might be discouraged in production-quality
       systems for reasons of modularity hygiene but LISP shouldn't
       complain if it occurs.
