Issue: LAMBDA-FORM (Version 3)

re: In Scheme, the operator of a function invocation form has the same
    evaluation semantics as the operands.  In CL, however, the operator is
    not evaluated in the same way that the operands are.
    I am concerned lest the new macro called LAMBDA should obscure this
    difference in evaluation semantics.  A novice Lisp programmer would have
    a hard time understanding why the #' is optional in

Hmmmm, having read your reasoning here, now I'm leaning towards rescinding
my tentative approval ("silence gives consent") on this issue.
