This issue should be folded into SYMBOL-MACROLET-SEMANTICS; it would be
hardly one line in the descripton of SYMBOL-MACROLET as a special form.
Since it looks like SYMBOL-MACROLET-SEMANTICS is not very controversial
anymore, I see no reason to support separate proposals.
If you support both proposals, I see no reason not to leave them separate
and just ask you to vote yes. . . .
Uh, the problem is that the SYMBOL-MACROLET-DECLARE issue is raised
primarily because a macro-definition for SYMBOL-MACROLET would leave
the issue of DECLARE open. But the special-form version of SYMBOL-MACROLET
really should address it [there already have been cleanup issues to address
the declaration matter for the special forms that logically should have them
but for which CLtL didn't say -- FLET, LABELS, etc].
These two issues can no longer really be separated; if no one bothers to add
the one-line sentence to SYMBOL-MACROLET-SEMANTICS that would fully subsume
SYMBOL-MACROLET-DECLARE, then at least these two ought to be paired together
in discussions and voting.
