Issue: SETF-PLACES (version 1)

re: . . . The current proposal looks like a recipe for
    disaster, since this name/spec distinction is going to confuse people and
    raise lots of questions about which can be used where.

The "disaster" is _already_ there -- in 88-002R.  Have you read it?
You have to pay careful attention to the whole thing, or else you may
not remember where it says what can be used where.  This proposal --
(1) to clear up the setf functions issue and (2) to limit the 
lists-as-names issue -- neither adds nor detracts from that potential
source of confusion.
