This probably isn't strictly necessary. PSETQ is a macro which presumably
expands into code which uses SETQ (assuming it doesn't expand into code which
uses an implementation-specific special form), which will then be transformed
into SETF. MULTIPLE-VALUE-SETQ is similar. Of course, it might be easier for
a compiler to optimize a PSETF than the transformed PSETQ expansion.
